Update – remote working

We have taken the decision today, guided by government guidelines, to close our office and have staff work from home.

The best way to contact us is via email: contact@scottishcotdeathtrust.org

Our family at Scottish Cot Death Trust is dedicated to supporting you through the difficult weeks ahead at what is already for many families we support, the most challenging time they have experienced.

As the reality of coronavirus begins to affect individuals, families and communities, we anticipate those we support to need extra help and are prepared for this.

Here are some changes to how we will deliver our services over the coming weeks:

Our support workers are currently offering Skype, Facetime and WhatsApp alternatives to home visits with telephone, text and email contact as usual.

Our Next Infant Support Programme will continue. If you are waiting on a monitor this will be delivered directly to you with follow up by your support worker.

Befriending will continue via telephone and online support.

Counselling will be via Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp and telephone arranged directly with each of our 98 counsellors.

We encourage you to engage with our online communities via our closed groups for peer support. Send us a message if you want to be added.

These are unprecedented times. We are here for you and with you through this.

Sending you all much love, comfort and strength. X
