Oxfordshire Sands (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death charity) is a volunteer-led group dedicated to providing help and support for anyone affected by the tragic death of a baby.  As a local branch of National Sands we support bereaved families across Oxfordshire including the areas covered by the John Radcliffe (Oxford) and Horton (Banbury) hospitals.

As bereaved parents ourselves, we understand the devastation and grief surrounding the loss of a baby.  Our befriender service can be accessed via telephone and email, providing support and information for parents, families and friends.

We hold regular, informal group meetings, where individual stories can be shared and support and advice offered.  Many bereaved parents find that the chance to openly talk to people who have also lost a baby is a lifeline, because somebody else really does understand what they are going through.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we are always here to listen and offer our support.
