We are Australia’s foremost charity dedicated to providing support, friendship and information, specifically tailored for families of premature or sick babies.
To ensure that all families enduring the difficult and life-changing experience of having a premature or sick baby have easy access to critical information and community support to help make a difference to them and their child.
Education and information for parents are crucial to getting the best possible outcomes for premature and sick babies; it empowers families and enables them to become their child’s advocate. We support families in hospital (Neonatal Intensive Care and Special Care Units) and in the community when families come home.
The Life’s Little Treasures Foundation is built around #familieshelpingfamilies. Our community are supportive, passionate and generous and is made up of families, friends, health professionals and supporters who all understand and care because they have been there too.
2023 FESTIVE SEASON APPEAL
Help us support families with sick and premature babies this festive season.
As we approach the Festive Season, a time traditionally associated with joy and togetherness, it’s important to remember that for families with premature or sick babies, it is often a period they feel more isolated than ever. This year, with the economic downturn and added burden this brings, we know families are struggling to cope. That is why the team at Life’s Little Treasures Foundation are here for families all year round.
Donate today to ensure our NICU Connections events continue in hospitals and online.
NICU Connections events bring together families who are going through a similar situation with our staff who have ‘the lived experience’ and are able to offer comfort and support. To ensure we can continue to deliver these events in hospitals and online, we’re running a Festive Season Appeal. Your donation will ensure LLTF can continue providing this crucial support in 2024.

KIND WORDS FROM FAMILIES WE’VE HELPED
The support we received from life’s little treasures during our hospital stay was amazing, the app was a godsend, with this new foreign language in an easy to read form with meanings, section for notes, updates on weight feeding etc, I will never be able to thank life’s little treasures enough for their support
I wanted to pass on my congratulations on the special care nursery booklet. It’s fantastic and I have given out my first copy this evening to a young couple who have a premmie 3 days of age. It looks wonderful!!
I’m so glad to have known the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation from the beginning and seen how you translated a very mixed (some would say awful) personal experience to a positive way of helping others in your position.You’ve made a huge difference to so many parents facing their worst nightmare
