Our Guiding Principles

Our guiding principles are very important to us.  So all branches of Little Sprouts follow these core principles at all times:

  • We focus on the best interests of babies in real need. The health, wellbeing and safety of babies in real need is what guides our decision-making at all times.
  • We are entirely run by unpaid volunteers - money we receive is used to help vulnerable babies and families.  
  • We give all donated baby items away for free.  We do not sell donations, we gift them to families who really need our help.
  • Our packs only include great quality items. Why?  Because this is what every baby and family deserves.  
  • We work with, and through, other charities and we listen to them as they understand the requirements of the families they support.  
  • Our Charity Partners decide who receives a Little Sprouts pack.
  • We are not  affiliated with, or opposed to, any particular religion, lifestyle or political viewpoint.   
  • We encourage positive giving, we do not attempt to coerce anyone into supporting us, and we truly value every donation (big or small).
  • We are reliable, if we commit to providing a pack or any other form of support we ensure that we provide it.
  • We form a giving community - we work to build enduring relationships with those who donate to us, volunteer for us and support us in other ways.
  • We believe that change is possible!
