SIDS and Kids SA
SIDS and Kids SA is dedicated to saving the lives of babies and children during infancy and childhood, and to supporting bereaved families. Their evidence-based education is developed for health professionals, childcare educators, new and expectant parents and grandparents and anyone who is involved in the care of babies and infants, such as foster carers and nannies.
SIDS and Kids SA provides bereavement support following the unexpected death of a baby or child from conception to six years of age. This includes miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal deaths, SIDS and any other accidental deaths. SIDS and Kids SA has been providing support to families for 40 years. SIDS and Kids SA is the only bereavement support organisation providing FREE professional ongoing face-to-face support to these families.
They also educate the community on safe sleep practices. Their education programs have reduced the incidence of deaths in infancy by more than 80%. They do not receive any ongoing government funding and rely on the support of the community through fundraising and donations to ensure their services can continue.
