3 core aims of Sands

  1. We support anyone affected by the tragic death of a baby. Bereavement support is at the core of everything we do.
  2. We work in partnership with health professionals to try to ensure that bereaved parents and families receive the best possible care.
  3. We promote and fund research that could help to reduce the loss of babies’ lives.
