Group Support 'I think from the moment I went to my first Sands support meeting, things began to look up. I am now always referring people to Sands, knowing how much of a difference the group has made to me.' – Tanya By registering your attendance for one of our online or face to face support meetings you will have the opportunity to ‘meet’ with other grieving parents, listen to their stories and share your own if, you feel comfortable. A volunteer parent supporter facilitates each meeting. The peer supporter, a bereaved parent, is trained in providing grief support to parents. Our facilitators are empathetic, non-judgemental, and are passionate about creating a warm, safe and welcoming environment for you, no matter the type of loss you’ve experienced or how long ago it was.
