Our Partners

The Neonatal Trust is a charitable trust and relies heavily on cash sponsorship, value-in-kind support and donations to deliver our much-needed services. We thank all of our incredible Partners for their ongoing and generous assistance.

Without their help, we could not provide our support to families of premature or sick full term babies as they make their journey through Neonatal Intensive Care, the transition home, and onwards.

The wider neonatal community is large, and is made up of individuals who are all consumers and in many cases business owners or in charge of purchasing decisions. Where possible, it would be great if you could consider supporting the great organisations below who support us.

Little and Fierce

Having a premature baby can leave parents in a fog of confusion. When the time comes to dress a Little and Fierce, it should be simple. When Laura’s son Boston, was born at 28 weeks , he was the inspiration for creating practical premature outfits which accommodated monitoring cords and breathing apparatus. In a prem ward, the little steps are the big steps. They looked for the perfect celebratory outfit to celebrate their fierce little guy. One that said “look how adorable I am” while having easy access to his tiny feet to put on his monitoring probe. It didn’t exist when they were in NICU, but they wanted it to exist for others. Therefore, they created the Little and Fierce range of clothing. For every premature item sold $1 is donated to The Neonatal Trust.
The Good Registry

The Good Registry

We are honoured to be one of the 65 charities that partners with The Good Registry which exists to simplify giving by supporting worthy causes.  The Good Registry helps take the waste out of gift giving and replace it with kindness. Too many gifts end up in landfill along with all their wrapping paper and packaging, when that money could spread joy instead. This can be achieved by starting a registry, giving to a registry or purchasing a gift card with the proceeds being given to your charity of choice.
