In Scotland a baby or young child dies suddenly and unexpectedly every nine days.
The Scottish Cot Death Trust is the only charity in Scotland dedicated to the sudden unexpected death of babies and young children.
The charity supports families through bereavement support, counselling, home visits, play therapy and peer support.
As well as funding medical research into the causes of sudden infant death, The Scottish Cot Death Trust educates the public and professionals about cot death and how to reduce the risks of it.
Global’s Make Some Noise is proud to support the charity’s ‘Families – Moving Forward Together’ project which provides a range of services and a Bereavement Support Worker for families who have been bereaved of a baby or young child.
Families can access counselling following the tragic death of a baby or young child. They can meet other families who understand what they’ve been through at family days. And children who live through the death of a sibling or born into a family after the death of a sibling can access play therapy and sibling support books to help them understand grief and encourage them to talk.
With your help, we can support The Scottish Cot Death Trust and many more charities across the UK.
