Aberdeen SANDS is one of more than 150 self help support groups which exist nationwide. Support is provided by letter, 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.
Aberdeen SANDS has close links with National SANDS which has its head office in London and is a registered charity. The address is: SANDS, 28 Portland Place, London, W1B 1LY. It is from there that a confidential help line service is offered by trained councillors. The help line number is 0207 436 5881. For administration or publications, contact 0207 436 7940. A forum can also put families with similar losses in touch - visit www.uk-sands.org
