Use of The Lullaby Trust logo on marketing and packaging
Our scientific advisers and safer sleep experts assess partnership products according to evidence-based advice on products, before the outset of our commercial partnerships. As a result, new or expectant parents in the process of choosing sleeping products for their baby can be confident in the quality and safety of a product displaying The Lullaby Trust logo.
Inclusion in positive PR activities
Our partners are often as passionate as we are about supporting parents and spreading the ‘Safer Sleep for Babies’ message. Through positive PR activities in conjunction with The Lullaby Trust, our partners have established themselves as trustworthy and responsible brands that are leading the way in providing safer sleep options for new parents and have a loyal customer base as a result.
For example, we recently produced a simple and easy to understand Product Guide to help new parents when choosing sleep products for their baby. We used our partners products to showcase examples of options that fulfill the criteria for our safer sleep guidelines. These guides will be distributed to parents and anyone involved in the care of a baby via health visitors, hospitals and our partner companies. View the guide here.

Supporting a charity at work helps engender a sense of purpose in the workplace and has been proven to boost staff morale. It can help create an appealing work culture for attracting and retaining staff. Our cause is a fantastic way to unite your team around something everyone can feel passionate about since many of your staff will be parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles themselves.
How our partnerships work
Our commercial partners support our work through financial contributions and by participating in our awareness raising activities and campaigns. We know that every company is unique and as a result each of our partnerships are unique. We endeavor to tailor partnerships to our partners business model and target audience. The financial contribution made by each partner will vary according to the nature of the partnership and the size and capacity of the company.
We hugely value our partners and are pleased to have established a portfolio of long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships that make a significant contribution to both parties strategic objectives.
Please note, The Lullaby Trust receives financial support through our cause-related marketing partnerships however our relationship with our commercial partners in the nursery industry does not in anyway influence our safer sleep advice, which is informed by scientific research. Funding from companies helps us to provide free safer sleep advice and support bereaved parents. We only associate with companies that support our safer sleep message and produce products that we consider to be safe.
