Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership

Safer Sleeping

Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership, Birmingham City Council, NHS trusts and charities, including the Lullaby Trust and Action for Children, are among organisations informing parents and carers of the simple steps they can take to reduce the risks of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and the potential dangers of ‘overlaying’ – suffocating babies and infant children when they sleep in the same bed as an adult.

Launched in 2016, the Safer Sleeping campaign was designed to promote the importance of safer sleep and the steps parents and carers can take to reduce risks.

Visit the Lullaby Trust’s website to find out how you can get involved with Safer Sleep Week.
