About Us

History
The Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Association of South Australia Inc,now trading as SIDS and Kids SA, was formed by a group of parents in October 1977. Our main aim was to raise funds for research and to educate the community about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
Today we have a much broader charter encompassing support for families who experience the sudden and unexpected death of a child during pregnancy, infancy and childhood, up to six years of age. We also provide education programs to reduce infant mortality.
Our services are reliant on the generosity of the South Australian community.
