About Us

Welcome to SIDS and Kids Tasmania

SlDS and Kids Tasmania is a community-based organisation, which was founded in 1978 by Marjorie Baker, a SIDS parent.  Back then we had two objectives, firstly, to provide funds for research into sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and to support Tasmanian families.

SIDS and Kids has a number of staff members based in its State Office in Burnie. It also relies heavily on volunteers, professionals and community assistance to fundraise, provide support, and assist with the running of the office.

SIDS and Kids Tasmania does not receive any State Government funding to support its education and support services provided free of charge to the Tasmanian Community.

Our main priorities include:


community education

SIDS and Kids information

safe Sleeping for under 2’s

childhood safety practices

student information

application-based education lectures

monitor for babies classed at risk

support and referral options for any childhood sudden and unexpected death,
