Other useful contacts
At the Scottish Cot Death Trust we aim to offer to support to anyone affected by the sudden and unexpected death of an infant. We are a small charity and unfortunately we cannot provide 24hr support via the phone or via social media. If you contact us outside working hours (Mon-Thu), we will aim to pick this up at the beginning of the next day. If you contact us after 4.30pm on a Friday it may be Monday before will receive that message.
