Our Education and Awareness – a snapshot of 6 months in 2021

Well, it is safe to say the pandemic has not stopped us or even slowed us down from delivering our safe sleep messages to professionals, community groups and families across Scotland. We have also been busy creating new resources and networking.

Looking back over the past six months, here is what we have been busy doing.

85 free safe sleep virtual education events

All our sessions are tailored to your availability and group size. Whether you just want to know about the latest evidence around safe sleep for babies or whether you want an interactive workshop style focussing on your workplace and what really matters to the families you support – we can arrange something to suit. From NHS staff teams to early years care providers and from students to experienced professionals, our sessions will benefit your team. Get in touch and we can discuss your needs and how to get the best from your session.

43 nurseries, 15 NHS teams and 8 community groups have benefited from a free session this year.

If you prefer a Q&A style session based on any queries your team has, we can help you too.

3 virtual national conference exhibitions and workshops.

Thank you to Bonnie Bairn Scotland, Children in Scotland learning week and everyone at the NHS Scotland conference who visited and chatted with us online. We have more events in the diary over the coming months but are thankful for a few weeks off from conferences. They are wonderful but a lot of work.

We have provided 12 college and university sessions for healthcare and childcare practice courses as well as 3 training providers

If you are looking for an engaging session for students on a course you are involved in delivering, get in touch to have safe sleep education booked into your next academic term.

National networks

As an organisation which covers the whole of Scotland, it is important that people working across many disciplines know about the work we do and the services we provide. An important part of our work is engaging with other bereavement groups and any professionals who may need to refer a family to us.

Over the past 6 months we have attended 39 regional and national network meetings across Scotland.

 

 

 

 

Oh, and we made a couple of education videos and redesigned our charity literature too! Look out for our new leaflets  – they are being posted out to teams across Scotland now. Here is a preview of a few of the support leaflets.

 

We can only do all this thanks to your support, so from all of the team – thank you!
