TinyLife (formerly NIMBA) was set up in 1988 by healthcare professionals and concerned parents in response to the growing number of babies requiring special or intensive care at birth.

Since our inception, we have established ourselves as a dynamic and highly effective organisation which has made - and continues to make - a valuable contribution to families across Northern Ireland by continuing to support medical research into the area of stillbirth, miscarriage and premature birth and by identifying and addressing the shortfalls in follow-up services for all those affected by premature birth.

We work closely with healthcare professionals, parents and local health authorities to keep up to date with the changing needs of families and to identify how best to address them.

As a regional charity, TinyLife relies heavily on the generosity of the general public and the business community in Northern Ireland to enable us to provide our services. We are grateful to all our supporters and volunteers for their invaluable assistance. Each year we have an events calendar, packed with events to suit all ages. Details of upcoming events can be found on our website and on our Facebook page.
