What is SUDC UK?

SUDC UK is a charity dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding of Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC). It also funds research to better understand and prevent these tragedies. The sudden unexplained death of a child is one of the most under-recognised medical tragedies of our time.

Co-founded by three SUDC bereaved mothers in 2017, in memory of all SUDC children, the charity aims to make a difference by shining their light on SUDC.

Our vision is for SUDC to be predictable and preventable.
