2. Introduction

The Neonatal Expenses Fund (NEF) is designed to help parents of premature and sick newborn babies to offset the cost of traveling to and from hospital during the early days of their baby's life and the subsistence required to allow them to spend time with their baby/ies in order to bond as a family during these early days.

Family-centred care is core to the delivery of neonatal care, ensuring that parents are partners in decision-making around their baby's care, that parents provide as much care as possible for their own babies, and that there is opportunity for regular communication between parents and clinical staff. This Fund supports these aims through the provision of practical support to enable parents to spend as much time with their baby as possible whilst receiving care within a Neonatal Unit.
