Who are SANDS?


SANDS, Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society, supports parents and families through the experience of losing a baby. They are a national charity (registration 299679).


Cardiff and Newport Branch


At Cardiff and Newport SANDS, we hold monthly support meetings and fund support packs and memory boxes for bereaved parents at the 4 major hospitals in our area.


We are run entirely by volunteers, - bereaved parents themselves who’s aim is to try and help others going through similar tragedies we have experienced ourselves.
