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.
This Christmas, give the gift that lasts all year round!
When things don’t go according to plan, it is always important to have a village of people surrounding you to offer support and help lessen the burden. It truly does take a village to raise a child and this Christmas, we encourage you to join ours.
The Village is our community of regular donors who support LLTF and who want to make a real difference in helping vulnerable families during one of the toughest times in their lives. Through regular monthly donations, our villagers help to ensure we can continue to provide ongoing support to families in need.

WALK FOR PREMS 2022
Big Steps for Little Treasures
Despite originally planning to hold our 13th annual Walk for Prems event on October 23, the recent bad weather across the country has seen a change in dates for some locations.
This year, we will be walking to raise funds for premature and sick babies and their families in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, as well as virtually in October and November.
Our Presenting Partner, Baby Bunting, is back for the seventh year. Through their fundraising campaign, run at their 68 stores across Australia, with one soon to be in New Zealand, Baby Bunting enables LLTF to deliver more products and services every year. We are very grateful for their continued support. Also joining us again in 2022 are Major Sponsors Steelcraft and Haakaa, along with our long-time Sponsor Medela and our Friends at Earlybirds.
Together with our community of families, health professionals, partners and supporters, we’ll be taking ‘Big Steps for Little Treasures’ and hope you can join us for this extraordinary community event on the new dates listed below.
23 October – Perth

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
