How Sands is making a difference
We provide free support to anyone affected by the death of a baby through our national helpline, forum and network of support groups.
We train thousands of midwives, doctors and other professionals so that they can provide the care and support parents desperately need when their baby has died.
We are pioneering a National Bereavement Care Pathway that would make providing excellent bereavement care a priority for all hospitals.
And we fund research to reduce the number of babies who die every day in the UK.
But there is much more work to be done.
A world where fewer babies die
Our vision is a world where fewer babies die and every bereaved family gets the care and support they need for as long as they need it.
By 2020 we aim to reduce the number of babies dying by at least 20%, and we urgently need to fund research to better understand what causes these deaths.
We also want every bereaved parent to receive a free memory box to collect keepsakes to help them remember their precious baby.

We are leading this fight but we can only make our vision a reality with your help.
