  • Mission statement

    Tiny Lives aims to improve the quality of care for premature and sick babies and provide a range of high quality support services for families. We seek to ensure that access to these services is available to everyone and to particularly target families experiencing hardship or disadvantage. Our vision is to support the highest quality of care on an ongoing basis by fundraising, grant making, and commissioning parent led services that support and add value to the care of sick and premature babies and their families. We aim to be an effectively run charity that welcomes and engages with new supporters, supports excellence in neonatal care by working closely with RVI staff, and has a parent led approach to the development of services that help families at one of the most critical times of their lives.
