What is SANDS ?

SANDS (Still Birth and Neo-natal Death Charity) is a national organisation which exists to support anyone who has been affected by the death of a baby before, during or shortly after birth. We offer emotional support and information for parents, grandparents, siblings, children, families and friends, health professionals and others.

RESEARCH

Stillbirth rates in the UK are around the same today as they were in the late 1990s. One in every 200 births ends in stillbirth, and one in every 300 babies dies within the first 4 weeks of life. Research is needed and National SANDS is involved in working with professionals in research to try and reduce the rates of stillbirth.

About SANDS

Local Support
Aberdeen SANDS is one of more than 100 self help support groups which exist nationwide. Support is provided by telephone,email, or by 1-1 contact with a SANDS befriender who has direct experience of loosing a baby. The Aberdeen group is run by a committee of bereaved parents - we have no office and are funded through our own efforts to raise money and donations. A quarterly newsletter is produced by Aberdeen SANDS which details group news and gives dates and venues of forthcoming meetings.

National SANDS:
Aberdeen SANDS has close links with National SANDS which has its head office in London and is a registered charity. It is from there that a confidential help line service is offered by trained councillors. A forum can also put families with similar losses in touch - visit www.uk-sands.org
