Quarterly Newsletters


Subscription to the Sands newsletter costs only $25 per year. You will recieve 4 editions per year. You can opt for either the electronic version or the paper-based hardcopy.

The newsletters report on events and news from the Sands office; work by staff and volunteers, fundraising achievements, requests for volunteer involvement and celebration of volunteer achievements. It also provides information about accessing services and links to articles and organisations to enhance your insight into the experience of grief and bereavement.

We welcome submissions of stories, poems and articles from parents and families and also from health professionals.

We dedicate space in each edition for the memory of babies that are cherished but not cradled.

Should you wish to develop a fundraising venture to support Sands Victoria, the newsletter is a great way to promote it and then finally share news about your achievements.
