Why we started SUDC UK

SUDC is the sudden and unexpected death of a child between 1 and 18 years of age, which remains unexplained after a thorough investigation is conducted. This short video explains the tragedy of Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood.

Co-founded by three bereaved mothers, SUDC UK aims to help make SUDC predictable and preventable by raising awareness and funding crucial research. Families must be supported following such devastating loss. Following registration with SUDC UK, families are immediately connected with expert professional and peer support. SUDC UK collaborates with our global partner, the SUDC Foundation to deliver this service.
