Parents supporting Parents.
The experience of grief is different for each individual and family. Anger, frustration, sadness, bargaining and denial are all normal emotions following the loss of a dear loved one. The role of Sands is to offer mutual support and understanding during this journey. Some families are members for only a short time and others remain members of Sands for life.
Sands has a 24 hour phone support service. This is often the first point of contact for bereaved parents. A member that has experienced the death of a baby attends the phone. The phone call is confidential and the Sands member is happy to listen without judgement to your thoughts, feelings and frustrations.
