Adapt is a small charity who provide support to families with premature and poorly babies on the neonatal units at Leicester Royal Infirmary and Leicester General Hospital. Having a premature baby can happen to anyone, and takes a massive toll on the family despite the fantastic medical care these babies receive.
Adapt funds family support workers who visit the Neonatal Units in both hospitals and provide ongoing care after families have gone home. They are in daily contact with all new parents at the hospitals, giving them the support and help they need in any way they can whether it be just a friendly face to talk to or help with more practical and financial issues. They rely solely on donations to continue to support families of premature babies.
Lamp is a Community Mental Health Advocacy charity supporting adults in Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland, and has done so since 1989. Their mission is to navigate people through the complexities of getting the right mental support and to empower them to rebuild their lives after experiencing mental ill-health.
Lamp’s advocates work with people to make sure they know their rights, their views are heard and listened to, they get the right diagnosis and treatment, and they can take control of their life.
Demand for Lamp’s services is increasing and becoming more complex. They rely upon the generosity of volunteers and donors to continue providing this life changing service.
