Life's Little Treasures Foundation - Supporting Families of premature and sick babies

Life’s Little Treasures Foundation is Australia’s foremost charity dedicated to supporting the families of babies born premature or sick.

We offer a range of free and accessible services in hospital, in the community when baby comes home, and online through the innovative use of technology.

We work with health professionals, social workers, researchers and trained volunteers to reduce trauma and empower parents to make the best choices for their family.

Our vision:
To ensure that no family endures the difficult and life changing experience of having a premature or sick baby without easy access to critical information and support.
