There are few people in life untouched by the death of a child - be it miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS or accidental death. The grief that follows the loss of a child is unimaginable and unique.
SIDS and Kids SA is the only organisation in South Australia that provides free ongoing counselling to South Australians affected by the death of a child. This service is life saving. Highly qualified specialist counsellors help bereaved parents to live with and beyond the pain of their loss.
Last year we received double the number of referrals on the year before - 94 in 2016 vs 48 in 2015. That's double the Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles and friends receiving support, and guidance on how to support each other. We receive no ongoing Government funding and rely on the South Australian community to help us fund this program.
Please take the time to vote for SIDS and Kids SA in My Giving Circle. It's your opportunity to provide some support back to us.
