There are still places available for our next Sands Befriender Training Part One course in London taking place on 6 & 7 February 2016. The closing date for this course is Saturday 9 January. To find out how you can apply please visit our Sands Befriending page.

Please note that to become a Sands Befriender, at least one year should have elapsed since your own baby's death.

Sands Befrienders are volunteers who have been affected by the death of a baby and play a vital role in offering support to bereaved families throughout the UK. Various other course dates are also available across the UK in 2016, for both Befriender Training Part One and Part Two.
