Welcome to the Autumn edition of the LLTF newsletter, 2016 got off to a flying start here at head office, and our feet haven’t touched the ground since. Our team have been busy hustling, but that’s just the way we like it! We have just got back from taking part in the PSANZ (Perinatal Society of Australia & New Zealand) conference in Townsville, a big four days where we got to meet so many wonderful people who work in the health sector.
As we know what an important role Dads play when bub is born early, one of our latest projects was developing a section on our website, especially for DADs. The love and care provided by the father can make a huge difference to baby’s health and development. Our web page is designed to give dad support and tips for his journey.
We are thrilled that ANZ Bank Foundation recently provided funding for two more of our popular webinars which we run in partnership with the VIBEs team at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. The view is to have one in late August, and the second early December. We hope to announce confirmed dates and topics for these webinars soon.
Finally, we are currently running our End of Financial Year tax donation campaign. You may have received an email from us already, telling you about Sarah and her three prems. If you have donated already, we can’t thank you enough for your generosity. If you haven’t yet then help us to support families like Sarah’s with premature and sick babies by following the link included in this newsletter to learn how to make your gift.
So a lot to get through, put the kettle on, grab a cuppa and enjoy the read. Hoping you and your little treasures all stay snug this season.
