We fundraise for families & sick babies to give them practical & emotional support.


We are thrilled to announce our upcoming fundraising event, "Soaring for SSNAP," where brave team members at DSA Prospect will be taking a leap of faith – quite literally – to support the incredible work of Support for the Sick Newborn and their Parents (SSNAP).

On Saturday the 16th of March 2024, we'll be taking to the skies and skydiving from a staggering 15,000 feet to raise funds for SSNAP, the DSA Prospect Foundation’s Charity of the Year. SSNAP provides vital support to families with sick newborns, offering comfort, resources, and assistance during what can be an incredibly challenging time.

Your generous donations will go to SSNAP, helping them continue their incredible work and make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most.

How You Can Help:

Donate: Your generous donation will directly contribute to supporting SSNAP's mission. No amount is too small, and every contribution makes a meaningful impact. We have an ambitious target and need your help reaching it!

Spread the Word: Share our fundraising page with your friends, family, and social networks. The more people who know about our cause, the more support we can garner.

Follow Our Journey: We'll be documenting our skydiving adventure with photos and videos. Follow us on social media for updates, and witness the adrenaline-pumping moments as we dive for a cause!


SSNAP is dedicated to ensuring that families facing the challenges of having a sick newborn receive the care and support they need. By supporting this organization, we are directly contributing to making a difficult journey a bit more manageable for these families.

Join us in making a difference! Your support means the world to us and to the families SSNAP helps.

Thank you for being a part of our journey and for helping us make a positive impact in the lives of those who need it most.

About the charity

RCN 1146622
In the UK, 1 in 10 babies need specialist care at birth. SSNAP supports sick & premature babies and their families in the Newborn Care Unit at the John Radcliffe Hospital. Imagine your newborn baby needing specialist care at birth. Instead of those very special days getting to know your baby as a family, you’re catapulted into an unfamiliar world of incubators, wires, medical tests and interventions. While your baby has specialist treatment, we provide emotional and practical support to help you through the trauma & upheaval. We’re there to help families cope, and provide state-of-the-art medical equipment and nursing expertise that could save babies lives.
