SIDS and Kids is dedicated to saving the lives of babies and children during pregnancy, birth, infancy and childhood and supporting bereaved families.
A not-for-profit organisation, SIDS and Kids was created in 1977 to support families who had experienced the death of a baby from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Over the years their services have been broadened beyond SIDS to support all families who have experienced the sudden and unexpected death of a baby or child regardless of the cause.
You can easily get involved by making a donation or by purchasing any Red Nose Day product. SIDS and Kids has helped save thousands of babies’ lives through education and community awareness programs, devoting millions of dollars into researching the possible causes of stillbirth, neonatal death and SIDS.
SIDS and Kids works to find answers for parents by funding and supporting vital research into stillbirth, SIDS and safe sleeping practices. Through evidence based community education we aim to prevent these deaths and we advocate for and support bereaved families.
By purchasing a red nose day product in June you will help fund:
- bereavement support for Australian families
- further research into areas such as stillbirth and Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy
- community education to reduce the risk of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy
On Friday June 26th Red Nose Day stalls will be set up at shopping centres across Adelaide including all major Westfield Shopping Centres.
In Rundle Mall they will be holding a Family Fun Day from 9am to 5pm. It will include a jumping castle, face painters, musical entertainment, photos in a police car, Disney characters, balloons and a colouring in competition.
