Lullaby Trust



The Lullaby Trust provides specialist support for bereaved families and anyone affected by a sudden infant death.


The Lullaby Trust provides specialist support for bereaved families, promotes expert advice on safer baby sleep and raises awareness on sudden infant death.

Working with the NHS we run a national health-visitor led service for bereaved parents, Care of Next Infant (CONI) programme, which supports families before and after the birth of their new baby.

We are committed to supporting research to understand why 600 babies a year die suddenly and unexpectedly in the UK and to find out more about how to prevent these tragic deaths.

The Lullaby Trust operates nationwide across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We run an information line for parents and professionals (0808 802 6869) and a dedicated line for bereaved families (0808 802 6868). Both are free to call from landlines and mobiles.

We campaign tirelessly, lobbying government to keep sudden infant death on the public health agenda. Since we formed as The Foundation for the Study of Sudden Infant Deaths in 1971 we have been pivotal in reducing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome by 70%.


Our patron 


Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Gloucester has been Patron of the Lullaby Trust for over 25 years. We are proud of this association, and so grateful to her for the personal support.  Attendance at Events and on occasions at Board Meetings allows us the opportunity to share our work and challenges, and keep The Duchess informed. In December 2013 we were given the opportunity to host a Reception to mark the 30th Anniversary of the Trust's Care of Next Infant Programme in the State Apartments, St James's Palace in the presence of our Patron – it was indeed a very special occasion.
