A letter to all parents on the neonatal unit in Greater Manchester
Spoons is a charity that supports families on the neonatal unit and in the wider
community. Our charity is led by parents who have all had babies on the neonatal unit. We understand how tough the neonatal journey can be and we know it can feel really lonely. More so at this time of social distancing.
We wanted you to know that we are always thinking of our fellow neonatal families.
In response to COVID-19, we have had to temporarily change the way we offer support on the neonatal unit. Our aim as a charity is to bring families together to support each other and that just isn’t possible to offer face face support at the moment.
However, we are still able to support you and your family. We are part of a whole community of neonatal families who are here to help you through your journey. We have lots of different resources available
for you and your family to tap into. We have taken lots of services online and are trying to make it as easy as possible for you to get in touch.
Hang on in there, you’re doing an amazing job.
With lots of the love Team Spoons x
