How you make a difference

Your support saves babies' lives

As a charity, your generous support matters more than ever in creating a future where no baby dies suddenly and unexpectedly.

Since we formed, our work has been instrumental in driving down the rate of SIDS and saving over 30,000 lives. Support from people like you has made this possible by funding the research that informs our expert advice, the resources to reach families with this advice and the services that help those affected by the death of a baby.

While this is excellent progress, every day families lives are still being devastated by the death of a baby. We are also deeply concerned that the increasing number of families living in deprivation will lead to increases in the number of deaths.

Every death is one too many and we’re determined to drive that number down to zero. With your support, we know this is possible.

Charlotte & Delilah

Delilah gave us purpose. Motherhood came very naturally to me and I enjoyed every moment with her. She was my little best friend.

Following Delilah’s death, The Lullaby Trust were immediately there for us. We used their bereavement support helpline initially and then the Befriender scheme. Knowing that The Lullaby Trust were there to listen and comfort was invaluable.

So thank you for helping to ensure that The Lullaby Trust can continue to be there for families like mine. And thank you for helping to change the future for babies like Delilah.

-Charlotte, Delilah’s mum

How we're going to save more lives

We’re committed to achieving our vision of a future where no babies die suddenly and unexpectedly. With your help, we know it can be done.

Our strategy for 2022-26 outlines what we want to achieve and how we’re going to get there. We will continue our core work to reduce unexplained infant deaths and support bereaved families. We will also develop two new areas of focus: providing information and support around sleep-related accidents and addressing the wider risk factors associated with baby and child deaths.
