Safer Sleeping Campaign



Merseyside’s Safeguarding Children's Boards have come together to create a safer sleeping campaign.
Every year, approximately 300 babies in the UK die suddenly and unexpectedly in their sleep as a result of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). The North West has the highest death rate in England and Wales.
The 5 Merseyside Local Safeguarding Children Boards (Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral) are working to reduce the number of these deaths across Merseyside.
Safer Sleep for Baby is based around six simple steps displayed above, designed to be easy to follow and cover the main risk factors.
