Nappy Support 


NEC UK offers nappy support to UK families of babies and children identified as having an above average usage of nappies because of Necrotising Enterocolitis and who meet the following criteria:

  • Have a stoma because of NEC or NEC related complication.

  • Have Short bowel syndrome (SBS) because of NEC and where an average use of nappies is regularly exceeded.

  • Are currently in hospital recovering from NEC, or NEC related complication or a reversal procedure.

Nappy support is intended as a contribution and is not a complete nappy supply service.

NEC UK will look at each application fairly, set against our nappy criteria, available funds, circumstances and need of each individual baby/child. Once we have received your application, we will email you to let you know we have received it and aim to give you a decision on if we can help within 7 working days thereafter.

Please download, print and complete the application returning it to us at NEC UK 42 Longhill Rise, Kirkby In Ashfield, NG179FG. You may also scan and email your completed application to us at


Please do let us know if you would like an application form sent to you. If you are currently in hospital or staying in parent accommodation, please reach out to the staff on the unit or within the accommodation who may be able to print you a form and email it back to us.
