Whittington Babies is a registered charity (no.295359) which was established in 1986 by a group of parents whose babies had spent time in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit).
The aim of the founders of Whittington Babies remains the same today; namely to support the families of babies who spend time in the NICU and the doctors and nurses who work in the NICU.
They are a very modest charity, helped by the Whittington but independent of it. They rely on the support of the NICU doctors, nurses and support staff as well as their members to make a difference to the parents we help.
