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.
Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust
Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust is the leading wildlife conservation charity working to protect and enhance the wildlife and wild places of Leicestershire and Rutland. They believe Leicestershire and Rutland should be rich in wildlife for the benefit of everyone, with more wildlife, more wild places and more people with a strong connection to nature.
The 35 nature reserves spread across Leicestershire and Rutland which they care for comprise some of the most important wildlife and geological sites in the two counties. To enable everyone to experience some of Leicestershire and Rutland’s fantastic wildlife, they arrange activities and events throughout the year. They also monitor, study and survey wildlife to identify special places and important species to inform conservation management. They campaign for wildlife, protecting threatened habitats like wildflower meadows and rare species such as ospreys, otters, bats and water voles, to ensure wildlife is around to appreciate for years to come. The Trust relies on the support of members and supporters, the dedicated work of local groups, and more than 700 volunteers.
