The Scottish Cot Death Trust


A baby dies suddenly and unexpectedly every nine days in Scotland and the majority of families will never know why their healthy baby has died, for no apparent reason. The Scottish Cot Death Trust is the only charity in Scotland dedicated to the issue of sudden unexpected death in babies and young children and trying to find the answers through funding research.

The Scottish Cot Death Trust provides a wide range of support for all family members bereaved by a sudden and unexpected baby or young child's death. They also educate the public and professionals about sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI) and how to reduce the risks. By supporting the Scottish Cot Death Trust you can help us make a difference.
