Simpsons Special Care Babies Charity

ABOUT US

Simpsons Special Care Babies is an entirely voluntary run charity, founded in Edinburgh in 1985. Our primary objective is to support the specialist care that the wonderful staff of the Simpson Neonatal Unit provide to babies born prematurely or sick, both within Edinburgh and throughout the country.

Our aim is to raise funds to provide: state of the art equipment, the most advanced staff training, groundbreaking research in the field of neonatology, and support and advice to the staff and families in the Neonatal Unit, complementing and enhancing that already provided by the NHS. The right equipment can save lives and provide babies with the best possible care. However, this equipment can vary greatly in cost, from a few hundred pounds to upwards of £100,000 – money which often would not be available without charity assistance.

 

We are constantly amazed and humbled by the level of support we receive from our fundraisers, without whom we would not be able to facilitate our aims. So thank you to those of you who have supported us in the past or are doing so now. If you would like to fundraise for us, please take a look at the variety of ways you can get involved or alternatively, we’d be delighted to speak to you directly, so please get in touch.

 

Best wishes,

Niall McLean
