Supporting bereaved families and providing Safe Sleeping education to the local community
SIDS and Kids SA provides bereavement support for individuals and families who experience or are affected by the sudden 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.
We also educate the community on safe sleep practices through brochures, information seminars and support education for hospitals, parents, childcare centres and the SA community. Our education programs have reduced the incidence of deaths in infancy by more than 80%.
We do not receive any ongoing government funding and rely on the support of the community through fundraising and donations to ensure our services can continue.
