On average 4 babies die, suddenly and unexpectedly, every week in the UK and no cause will be found. This is known as sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Safeguarding Partnership Board will be supporting the Lullaby Trust’s Safer Sleep Week campaign, which takes place from 15-21 March 2021, and aims to reach as many families as possible to raise awareness of SIDS and equip parents with information on how they can reduce the risk.
Any professional coming into contact with families with young babies can make a difference. Health professionals are key, but others including housing, social care and emergency services can make a difference
