NCT response to FSID's relaunch as the Lullaby Trust

Released on: 10 April 2013

FSID has today relaunched as the Lullaby Trust.

NCT’s Chief Executive Belinda Phipps said:

“NCT is delighted to welcome the renaming and relaunch of FSID as the Lullaby Trust.  It is a great sadness that the poorest and most vulnerable mothers in the country are more likely than others to lose their babies through sudden infant death.   

“The time is right for a charity that focuses on helping these mums make sure their babies sleep safely. By reducing the risk factors and following the safe sleep guidelines for cot sleeping and bed sharing, the Lullaby Trust’s goal to halve the number of babies who die unexpectedly by 2020 is not just commendable, but achievable.”
