About The Neonatal Trust

Originally established in 1986 by two Wellington families with extremely premature babies, we are we are a registered not-for-profit which now operates right across New Zealand.   

The Neonatal Trust works to provide, and coordinate, support to families of premature and sick full-term babies as they make their journeys through neonatal intensive care, the transition home, and onwards. 

This is done through many channels such as the provision of Care Packs on entry to a unit, morning teas to bring families and experts together, provision of equipment for family use in the units, post-discharge playgroups and coffee mornings. 

We currently have team members in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, and Dunedin with a constant drive to expand into all areas, the majority of whom have first hand experience of time in a NICU or SCBU.
