Purpose & Structure

Charitable Purpose

Little Sprouts Charitable Trust mission is to ensure that all babies in NZ are given the best start in life. This is achieved by providing life-saving packs to vulnerable families who are selected and supported by our charity partners (Neonatal Trust, Red Cross, Women's refuge, Salvation Army, Birthright, NET, Family start, House of Grace and more). Our packs contain everything a baby needs, including a merino sleeping bag, swaddles, sheets, wool and cotton blankets, an entire wardrobe of clothing, reusable and disposable nappies and wipes, health and safety items like smoke alarms and digital thermometers, books, toys, towels, flannels and toiletries, and much more. We also provide safe sleeping spaces whenever needed, as well as strollers, baby baths, high chairs, bottle packs and much more.
