Scottish Cot Death Trust

The Scottish Cot Death Trust is the only charity in Scotland dedicated to Sudden and Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI), which is also commonly referred to as cot death or SIDS. Sadly, SUDI claims the life of 1 baby or young child every 9 days in Scotland, and many of their families will never know why their healthy baby has died To learn more, please visit www.scottishcotdeathtrust.org
