“I didn't know why I dialled the number, I don't normally like to talk about it... when they answered, I didn't know what  to say, but finding this gentle voice who allowed me to take my time and really listened to me was exactly what I needed. I really felt they understood.”

About Sands

Sands was established in 1979 and today provides support, information and education to bereaved parents, their families and healthcare professionals following the death of a baby.

At Sands, our volunteers offer a real sense of understanding and hope as they too have been through the devastating loss of a baby in the past.

Sands understands that everyone grieves differently and there is no right or wrong way to grieve. Each person needs different types of support and this can change over time.  Some people may be happy to talk, others might take comfort from quietly reading about others experiences, while some may prefer to meet face to face and share their experience or send an email.
