The Lullaby Trust is dedicated to saving babies’ lives. It is the UK’s only baby charity dedicated to preventing ‘cot death’ (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) and promoting safer sleep.
Every year, sadly over 600 babies die suddenly and unexpectedly, affecting more than four UK families every week. The Lullaby Trust aims to halve the number of sudden and unexplained infant deaths in the UK by 2020.
The charity provides bereavement services in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland to help families to cope with their loss, and reaches out to educate parents of the dangers of cot death. The Lullaby Trust helps roughly 1,200 babies, children and their families each year.
Following the unexpected death of her son, CJ, at just 17 days old, Michele Langola called The Lullaby Trust for support. She said: “Making the call did take a while and is nerve-wracking but everyone at The Lullaby Trust is so warm, loving and encouraging.”
Global’s Make Some Noise is proud to help The Lullaby Trust deliver eight free Family Days at family-friendly locations across the UK, designed for children who have experienced the sudden and unexpected loss of a sibling.
Bereaved children are at particularly high risk of mental health problems and psychological deterioration in later life, and more likely than other children to have problems with anxiety and drinking.
Each Family Day offers a fun and supportive day where bereaved families enjoy spending time together but also remember and celebrate the short life of the baby they have lost.
