The Scottish Cot Death Trust

In Scotland a baby or young child dies suddenly and unexpectedly every nine days.

LBC’s charity Global’s Make Some Noise is proud to support The Scottish Cot Death Trust, the only charity in Scotland dedicated to the sudden unexpected death of babies and young children. The charity supports families through bereavement support, counselling, home visits, play therapy and peer support.

As well as funding medical research into the causes of sudden infant death, The Scottish Cot Death Trust educates the public and professionals about cot death and how to reduce the risks of it.

Project supported by Make Some Noise...
Global’s Make Some Noise is proud to support the charity’s ‘Families – Moving Forward Together’ project which provides a range of services and a Bereavement Support Worker for families who have been bereaved of a baby or young child.

Families can access counselling following the tragic death of a baby or young child. They can meet other families who understand what they’ve been through at family days. And children who live through the death of a sibling or born into a family after the death of a sibling can access play therapy and sibling support books to help them understand grief and encourage them to talk.

With your help, we can support The Scottish Cot Death Trust and many more charities across the UK.

SSNAP

SSNAP a small charity that supports sick and premature babies, and their families across the South West at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

The charity provides emotional and practical support to families during what can be a traumatic time when their babies are being cared for in the neonatal unit. SSNAP also funds innovative and life-changing medical equipment that ensures babies are receiving the best care possible during their time at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

Project supported by Make Some Noise...
Global’s Make Some Noise is proud to support the charity’s Family Care Team, allowing the charity to extend support hours into evenings and weekend for parents and siblings of babies in the neonatal unit at the hospital.

The support provided by the Family Care Team is vital. When babies are born premature or are very unwell parents and siblings can find this time to be traumatic, upsetting and difficult to handle both emotionally and practically.

The Family Care Team are on hand at the hospital to help in any way they can, from providing emotional support to a space for families to rest so that they can be close to their babies.

Tom's Trust

Last year, we helped Tom's Trust, a charity founded in 2011 by Andrew and Debs Whiteley after losing Tom, their only son at the age of nine.

Tom died of a brain tumour and the family desperately needed more psychological support during this devastating time, and there was almost none. Debs and Andrew set out to ensure that psychological support for children and their families would be available from the point of diagnosis in Tom’s name.

Debs came in to see James O'Brien to explain exactly how the money you raised for them benefitted young children and their families.
