We are delighted that our awareness video ‘a Baby’s Guide to Safe Sleep’ has been nominated for this year’s Charity Film Awards.
We created the video to help launch SafeSleepScotland, our education and information hub. We show the video at our education sessions around the country and it was designed to be an engaging compliment to our existing awareness resources. You may have noticed it on social media – it’s already reached over 100,000 people!

The Charity Film Awards champions effective story-telling and digital engagement among not-for-profits in the UK. Since its launch in 2017 over 1000 charity films have been entered and over ¼ million votes have been cast. The awards have driven increased awareness, social media engagement and donations for the participating charities. Last year’s winners include: Child Bereavement UK, NSPCC/Childline, RSPCA, Cats Protection and Breast Cancer Care.
Over the course of 2019, our safe sleep ‘nursery rhyme’ has been very well received across our target groups. Baby loss is often seen as a taboo subject and that can spread across to prevention messages which is understandable. So by creating something simple, engaging, and as fun as possible – something a little different – we hope to increase awareness and understanding of how we can reduce the risks and rates of SUDI.
The current public vote phase will determine the final shortlist, which will then be judged by a panel of experts. The winners will be announced at a gala event at a prestigious venue in London in Spring 2020.

Simon Burton, founder of the Charity Film Awards, commented:
“All the charities that have entered deserve to be congratulated, but they need more than thanks, they need votes!
“It’s simple for the public to vote for their favourite charity film at www.charityfilmawards.com and many voters also go onto donate. Nearly 10% of those who voted last year also made a donation.”
