How red tree foundation can support you

The Red Tree Foundation provides free grief counselling and bereavement support for any family in the South Australian community impacted by the sudden and unexpected death of their baby or child. Types of deaths we support include pregnancy losses, accidents (car, driveway, drowning, sleep related), sudden onset illnesses, fatal assaults, SIDS deaths and suicides. At the Red Tree Foundation we believe that all families that experience the sudden death of their child should be able to access free grief counselling and bereavement support if they want it.

 

SIDS AND KIDS SA

Educating the community about safe infant sleep 

Since the inception of safe infant sleeping guidelines in the early 1990s, the incidence of Sudden Unexpected Deaths in Infancy (SUDI) has reduced by 85%, saving thousands of babies’ lives. Vigilance is still required to maintain this reduction in the number of babies dying from SIDS and fatal sleeping accidents so continued education and training is vitally important.
