When someone loses a baby, it is an isolating, devastating and life-changing experience. That’s why the Sands community is so important – to support families through their loss and to grow around grief. 

And it's why Sands wants to bring people closer together, because we all play a role in making a difference to bereaved families and saving babies' lives.  

Find your place within our community.

Sign up to become a volunteer, find out how you can campaign for change, fundraise by hosting a Sands Summer Social, donate or simply take part in some of our 15-minute asks – all to help support bereaved families and save babies' lives.   

Because together, we are Sands.
