We are funding new cots for the maternity ward at Macclesfield District General Hospital, where at least 1,600 babies are born each year. Since every baby will need a cot to ensure sleep safety, the ward requires 26 to be available for postnatal women and their babies. In March 2020 the hospital suspended its inpatient maternity services because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The maternity department is now planning to reopen and is carrying out a review of its equipment. The existing cots are decades old, some are damaged, and may not comply with enhanced infection control regulations. Unfortunately, there is no NHS funding to replace them, so we have agreed to provide 12 new cots for the department.

“The materials provided greatly help with the therapeutic process and engaging children, young people and their families in therapeutic work. The young people greatly appreciate having this equipment to use within their sessions. Many of the young people we see have a history of trauma including neglect and being able to access materials that they can use and enjoy is of great benefit and hopefully assists us to reinforce the messages of their worth as their self-concept is often very low.”
