Scottish Cot Death Trust
Every 9 days in Scotland a healthy baby dies suddenly and unexpectedly. Families who experience this tragedy often need to access specialist bereavement support. Merchants House of Glasgow has generously donated £2,000 towards the cost of outreach support work and counselling to ensure we can keep providing this vital service to parents, siblings and grandparents learning to adjust to a new life without their baby/ sibling/ grandchild. It is difficult to put a price on what this means to anyone family affected but it can mean the difference between them recovering and living life to its fullest potential after their devastating loss.
This funding will also be used towards our Next Infant Support Programme to help those families with additional psychological support during pregnancy and in the first year of a new baby’s life. On behalf of all our families, I would like to say thank you to the Merchants House of Glasgow
