Sands highlights our amazing volunteers by holding Volunteer Awards: a chance to say thank you for the incredible support and contribution that our dedicated volunteers make across the UK to support bereaved families and anyone affected by the death of a baby.

This year's winners were revealed at a ceremony during Sands Conference on Saturday 23rd November in London.

This event recognises the contribution of all volunteers and rewards the winners for their dedication and commitment.

  • Inclusion – empowering men/other faiths/different backgrounds to find/get involved with Sands
  • Fundraising – raising large amounts, or helping organise several events/taking part in lots of events
