For almost thirty years, Sands has been supporting parents and families who experience reproductive loss.
Sands aims to facilitate healthy grieving following the death of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, newborn death or termination.
Sands organisations across Australia:
Recognise that the loss of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth and newborn death often has a significant and lifelong impact on the lives of women, their partners and families.
Encourage support for families through recognition of their diverse experiences of loss.
Value health and bereavement care that is of a high quality for parents and families.
Acknowledge the diversity of individuals with regard to culture, religion, class, gender and the uniqueness of all grief reactions.
All Sands organisations are parent managed, not-for-profit associations. Some State and Territory Sands Associations are self-funded through donations and corporate sponsorships, while others continue their important work with the assistance of State and Commonwealth financial grants and service contracts.
Donations to Sands are tax deductible.
