    It's National Volunteer week 18 - 25 June 2017.  We want to celebrate and acknowledge the wonderful support we receive from volunteers that enables our support of neonatal families. From hundreds of knitters, to volunteers who support with baking, fundraising, writing & editing, sewing and raising awareness - we simply could not function without volunteers.

    The Neonatal Trust and Bellyful are both Partner charities of the wonderful One Percent Collective

    This week the two charities came together at a joint 'cookathon' to create meals for families in need - a number of which will support families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Dunedin Hospital.  This is a new approach which the teams have been working on for a wee while now and it was fantastic to see it all come together!  

We are dedicated to making a difficult start to life that little bit easier

The Neonatal Trust provides support to families of premature or sick full term babies as they make their journey through neonatal care, the transition home, and onwards. 

We are committed to supporting these courageous families and the people who care for them. We are able to provide the services we do due to the support we receive from many volunteers and also the below Partners. To learn about these great organisations, please click here.

Our core focus is supporting families with the things that really matter when they are going through their neonatal journey. Recent donations went to buying chairs for comfortable breastfeeding and 'Kangaroo cuddles'

You don't have to have had a baby in a NICU to get involved as a volunteer. Whatever contribution you can make, big or small, your help is very much welcomed by the Trust. You might want to do some knitting, help with managing our database of volunteers, or assist from time to time when you can with running events and fundraising. We are planning a National fundraiser in November 2017, based around World Prematurity Day, and some of the planned activity will be much more successful with volunteer support. Do join our database to be kept up to date with our plans.

Depending on the role, volunteers may be required to undergo a Police Check.
