About Us

The Winnicott Foundation raises funds to improve care for premature and sick babies through supporting the neonatal units at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, and Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital, Hammersmith, by:

  • helping to save the lives of premature and sick newborn babies
  • helping families to be with their babies
  • helping to give premature and sick babies a better long-term future

An independent registered charity, the Winnicott Foundation was founded in 1985 by parents and doctors who wanted to do more for premature and sick babies than the NHS was able to do. Originally formed to help the neonatal unit at St Mary’s, the charity is now supporting both of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust’s neonatal units at Queen Charlotte’s Hospital and St Mary’s Hospital.

The Winnicott Foundation works with staff and parents to meet the long-term and day-to-day needs of babies and families and of the neonatal units. The charity provides funding for:

  • supporting developmental care, including staff training and buying materials and equipment to make babies more comfortable such as baby clothes and cot and incubator covers to reduce noise and light, and providing information for parents and staff
  • medical equipment not available from NHS funds, such as new equipment or early upgrades to benefit from new technology
  • parent support, including help with travel costs and hotel accommodation for families whose babies have been transferred or are very sick, books and information, parent support groups, a hardship fund, and bereavement support
  • family rooms and nursery environment, such as reclining cotside chairs for skin-to-skin cuddles and breastfeeding, TV, PC and internet access, and refurbishment of the parent bedrooms and sitting room
  • research
  • staff training: helping increase skill levels in the neonatal unit
  • information and technology including patient database, books and publications
