Sands is a UK charity that works across the country to support anyone affected by the death of a baby; improve the care bereaved parents receive from health care and other professionals; and reduce the number of babies who do die by funding research and working closely with other organisations to create a world where fewer babies die.

We have a free national helpline offering bereavement support and information on the telephone and by email.

Derby Sands offers support, comfort and understanding to anyone affected by the loss of a baby before, during or after birth

They provide support at our monthly support group held on the Second Tuesday of each month: 7.30 pm — 9.30 pm


Venue: WEA (Workers Educational Association), The Mill, Lodge Lane, Derby, DE1 3HB
