Find support Support groups In Person & Online Group Support 'I think from the moment I went to my first 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 We are so sad that you have reason to enquire about or register for one of our online support groups. We hope that you will find a welcoming, safe space to experience support and connectedness within our community of bereaved parents who have also experienced the heartbreak of a baby or young child dying, a baby being stillborn, a pregnancy loss or medically advised termination. Our groups are held on a monthly basis and are up to two hours in duration. Our support groups are co-facilitated by two (wherever possible) specially trained peer supporter volunteers, counsellors, peer support team members or a mixture of any of these. We cannot comment on any medical issues raised by bereaved parents.
