Service description:
We know 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.

Our confidential telephone helpline provides a safe place for anyone affected by the death of a baby to talk about their feelings. Our experienced helpline team is there to listen and give information if you need it.

Many parents feel that only other parents who have experienced the death of a baby can offer real understanding. Our local support groups are run by bereaved parents and often offer regular meetings and can be contacted by telephone and/or email.

We have a network of over 104 groups across the country. For more information including how to find your nearest Sands Group, please visit the Groups section of our site.

We know it is not always easy to talk and that some people prefer to contact us by email. Your emails will be answered with warmth, and in confidence.
