Sands aims to reduce the number of babies dying and to improve bereavement care for all parents and families.

To help us meet our aims, we fund research focusing on:

  • understanding the causes of stillbirth and neonatal death
  • identifying pregnancies at risk of perinatal deaths and improving care for those pregnancies 
  • improving bereavement care.
