Support group

A local baby bereavement group is seeking volunteers to help support parents. Currently 15 babies a day die in the weeks before or just after birth. Bereavement charity Sands (stillbirth and neonatal death charity) aims to care for those families with practical and emotional support for as long as they need it.

While many Sands volunteers have themselves experienced baby death, you need not have personal experience to offer help. Guidance, support and resources are provided. Call 07833 491603 or email
