Local Support

Our next meetings are noted below. We know that attending your first support meeting can be daunting. Please call us first before attending, so we can talk you through what to expect and to ensure a warm welcome when you do attend.

We are also hosting an informal support event on [date], which aims to bring together families and friends affected by the death of a baby. Please see our Events page for more details.

We know that these meeting dates might not be suitable for you, or you may wish to speak to someone about your baby today. You can always access immediate support from the Sands Helpline team – their contact details are below.
