The Lullaby Trust
The Lullaby Trust raises awareness of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), provides expert advice on safer sleep for babies and offers emotional support for bereaved families
Our life-saving safer sleep advice
Every year over 500 babies die suddenly and unexpectedly and over half of those deaths remain unexplained. We don't know what causes sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) but what we do know is that there are simple steps parents can take to reduce the risk of it happening.
If all parents followed safer sleep advice, many lives could be saved and we work hard to raise awareness of SIDS. We aim to make sure all parents receive up to date and scientifically-proven advice on how they can keep their baby as safe as possible.
We also train and provide information to healthcare professionals who support new families, to make sure parents receive consistent advice and are equipped with the knowledge to sleep their baby more safely.
Support for bereaved families
The Lullaby Trust helps families who experience the sudden loss of a baby, providing emotional and practical support. We can also connect them with others who have experienced a similar bereavement through our Befriender scheme. We work to ensure that families are fully supported through this devastating experience.
We are here for all family members at any time, whether the bereavement was very recent or many years ago.
