Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity (Sands)

Sands is a national charity, established by bereaved parents in 1981. Sands supports anyone who has been affected by the death of a baby before, during or shortly after birth.  They offer emotional support and information for parents, grandparents, siblings, children, families and friends, health professionals and others.

Sands have three core aims which are to:

  • support anyone affected by the death of a baby; 
  • work in partnership with health professionals to improve the quality of care and services offered to bereaved families; and
  • promote research and changes in practice that could help to reduce the loss of babies' lives.
