The Life’s Little Treasures Foundation is a charity which is dedicated to providing support, friendship information and assistance to families
of children born prematurely. It is currently run by parents who themselves have had a premature baby and so truly understand the challenges that these babies and their families face. Our services are available in the hospital (neonatal and special care units) and in the community when families come home.
Services provided by health professionals like yourself play a vital role for families both in the hospital and once babies come home. We aim to work closely with you to let families know they are not alone in this journey. We can provide you and families with information about help and support available to them.
