Welcome to Leicestershire and Rutland Sands
Leicestershire and Rutland Sands is part of Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity. Sands operates throughout the UK, supporting anyone affected by the death of a baby, working to improve the care bereaved parents receive, and promoting research and working closely with many different organisations to reduce the loss of babies’ lives.
Leicestershire and Rutland Sands is a volunteer-led Group that works to support the charity’s vision aims in our area. As bereaved parents ourselves, we understand the pain and grief of when a baby dies. The support we offer can be accessed via telephone and email, and through support meetings and events with other bereaved families. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are here to listen and offer our support.
