Who We Are: 

The Trust is the only cot death charity in Scotland. The Trust is available to any family affected by the sudden, unexpected death of a baby or young child under 5 years of age.

What We Offer:

  • Support – Bespoke support services for all family members including parents, siblings and  grandparents. The support available includes home visiting bereavement support and on-going contact with the regional support worker for that area, counselling, befriending and play therapy for siblings. The Trust also provides family days to bring parents, siblings and grandparents together for peer support.
  • The Next Infant Support Programme (NISP) is available for parents and siblings affected by a cot death, who are having a baby. The service includes all the support offered above plus the loan of an apnoea monitor for 12 months after birth.
  • Funding Research – Funding research into the cause(s) of cot death.
  • Education and raising awareness – Providing free education to parents and professional across Scotland on ways to reduce the risks of cot death and to raise awareness of cot death. We strive to improve the multi-professional response when a baby or young child dies suddenly and unexpectedly so that families may be better supported.
