History of Sands ACT

Following the demise of SMANDA which had supported bereaved parents in the ACT since June 1984, Sands ACT was formed in May 1990 after a public meeting organised by the

National Association for Loss and Grief.

Since its formation, much time and energy has been committed to establishing the group as a recognised and reliable source of support for families who have experienced the death of a baby.

It is believed that Sands ACT merged with SIDS and Kids in the early 2000’s.
