Description Aims and Objectives

Guernsey Sands (the stillbirth and neonatal death support charity) is part of a UK-wide network of local groups that exist to provide emotional support and practical help when a baby has died during pregnancy, at birth or shortly afterwards.

Sands goals are to;

- support anyone affected by the death of a baby;
- work with health professionals to improve the quality of care and services provided to bereaved parents and their families;
- promote changes in antenatal practice and fund research that could help to reduce the loss of babies’ lives.

Locally Guernsey Sands offers support from trained befrienders, who have themselves been affected by the death of a child and hold monthly community meet ups for bereaved parents, relatives and close friends.

Guernsey Sands also works with staff on the Loveridge and Frossard wards with a view to improving training, support and care in this area.

Organisation and Management
