Get involved

There are lots of ways to support the UCLH neonatal unit – these are just a few ideas…

Stay in touch – Share your stories and celebrate your milestones. We’ll keep you updated on developments with Early Lives and the UCLH neonatal unit. Drop us a line and we’ll add you to our mailing list. Don’t worry, we will be very careful with your details and we won’t be in touch too often.

Fundraise for us – We are always looking for ways to raise money. If you would like to undertake a challenge event, go to and click the start fundraising button. You could be up and running within just a few minutes and every penny you raise will go to improving life on the neonatal unit.

Crochet octopuses – Our crocheted octopuses provide a comfort to babies as the tentacles mimic the umbilical cord in the womb. We are always looking to replenish our stock so if needlework is your thing, please get in touch and we will send you the pattern.

Peer to peer support – We are developing a peer to peer support programme where veteran parents help current parents navigate their way through their neonatal journey. If you are interested in knowing more, please let us know.

We are developing more ideas and would love to hear yours too. Email us at
