Our Mission / Objective

Red Nose Mission 

A future where no child dies suddenly and unexpectedly during pregnancy, infancy or their pre-school years.

Red Nose Vision 

Saving the lives of babies and children during pregnancy, infancy and childhood and supporting bereaved families.

Our Services

Red Nose is a national not-for-profit organisation providing Safe Sleeping and child safety education to new and expectant mothers, health care professionals and carers.  Since our Safe Sleeping public health campaign was introduced in 1990 we have reduced the risk of sudden infant death syndrome and fatal sleeping accidents by 80% saving some 9,000 babies lives.

Our information is available through maternity hospitals, baby and children’s expos and through our offices nationally.  Our safe sleeping education information can also be accessed online at www.rednose.com.au including our smart phone applications and downloadable information.  Our safe sleeping and cot-to-bed information is available in four languages including Chinese, Arabic, Hindi and Vietnamese.

Our Red Nose Grief and Loss services are available nationally through our 24 hour bereavement support line 1300 308 307 and our newly launched website www.rednosegriefandloss.com.au.  We provide counselling services, support groups, grief and loss literature and access to peer support networks.

Our Beneficiaries

Red Nose provide education and support services to new and expectant mothers, health care professionals and carers through a range of programs.  These programs include safe sleeping, cot-to-bed safety, tummy time and safe wrapping information as well as a Child Care Kit developed for child care centres and home care.  For health care professionals we have a range of literature and an accredited online education program available through our website www.rednose.com.au.

Red Nose also works directly with indigenous communities to provide education and literature promoting safe sleeping practices.

Our Red Nose Grief and Loss Services are available to anyone who has experienced the sudden and unexpected death of their baby or child from 20 weeks in pregnancy and upwards.  Our services include counselling, grief and loss literature, support groups, 24 hour bereavement support line and access to our peer supporter network. We know that the death of a baby or child can impact on up to 60 people.

We also provide workplace training programs which assist workplaces in returning bereaved parents safely back into the workplace.

Projects in Progress

With over 40 years’ experience support grieving individuals and families, we understand the sudden and unexpected death of a baby or young child is one of the most difficult experiences any person will face.  This website has been developed to connect individuals and families with a range of support options, useful resources and information.
