Irish Premature Babies is a primarily voluntary run charity. Our chairperson and founder has worked without payment for over 6 years, doing on average 30 to 40 hours each week. Due to ill health of our chairperson in 2016, the board have had to take on a part time contract administrator. The charity receives €10,000 from the HSE for our breastfeeding programme. We rely entirely upon the volunteers within the charity to fund raise, we rely upon the support and generosity of the general public to help us.
