27 Years On!

Welcome to TinyLife  (Formerly NIMBA) Northern Ireland's premature and vulnerable baby charity, dedicated to reducing premature birth, illness, disability and death in babies born here.

Thanks to you, we have helped support premature and ill babies and their parents  since 1988. Almost 1800 babies spent time in the Neonatal units last year in Northern Ireland so this year we need your help more than ever.

TinyLife is committed to providing  a range of support  services that meet the growing needs of families of premature and ill babies in Northern Ireland. TinyLife continues to support vital research to ensure that every pregnancy has the best chance of a healthy outcome and a healthy baby.

This website provides information on the services we provide, our education programme, fundraising activities and volunteering opportunities. So whether you are a parent in need of support, a corporate organisation who would like to make a contribution to the local community or a potential volunteer, there’s something for everyone!

Why change our name?

In 2006 Northern Ireland Mother and Baby Action rebranded as TinyLife, recognising the wide range of support services we now offered to all members of the family.

We have worked hard over the past 27 years, having raised over £500,000 for medical research, increased our range of support services to families with premature and ill babies, developed a range of educational leaflets, and facilitated conferences for health professionals and families.

We may be Tiny but we aim to make a big impression.
