Fundraising for PICU

There are two main ways you can support Southampton PICU if you have been inspired by our work.

You may wish to support the Friends of PICU (registered charity number 1116880), a charity that is run by volunteers who have all had, or known, a child who has been cared for on PICU.

The Friends of PICU exists to raise money to support the unit, children and their families by providing equipment and services that are not always provided by the statutory authorities. Recent projects have included adding two additional beds, and refurbishing our parent's accommodation. Your support can help to make a real difference.

Other projects include fundraising for the dedicated PICU specialist retrievals ambulance, of which the charity is very proud to have donated the full cost of the last two ambulances. This ambulance provides a key part of the PICU service across the South of England.

All funds raised benefit the paediatric intensive care unit.

If you would like more information about the Friends of PICU please contact them via the Friends of PICU website or email

Southampton Hospital Charity PICU fund

Alternatively you can make a donation to PICU via the main Southampton Hospital Charity, and choose between donating to the general fund that benefits all hospital services, or the special PICU account that is only spent on PICU services.
