Privacy statement

Whittington Babies was established in 1986 by a group of parents whose babies had spent time in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). The aim of the Charity is to support the families of babies who spend time in the NICU and the doctors and nurses who work in the NICU.

We are a very modest charity, helped by the Whittington Hospital but independent of it. We rely on the support of parents, medical staff, fund raisers and volunteers. We have a legal responsibility to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation, also known as GDPR, which ensures we protect any personal data we hold on anyone connected with the Charity.

We will collect the information that you decide to share when communicating with us. This could be in the course of making a donation, signing up to be contacted at one of our events, or other means. We may also receive information about you when you interact with third parties with whom we work. eg if you’ve made a donation to us through a third-party website (such as JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving) and given them permission to share your information with us.
