We’re dedicated to supporting research into:

  • the causes of stillbirths and neonatal deaths.
  • better ways of identifying and monitoring babies at increased risk of dying.

Sands contributes to the funding of some research studies using money from our research fund.

We support other studies by helping to recruit participants or acting as co-applicants on funding applications (see other supported projects). This means we are named as a member of the research group applying for funding. Our role in the group usually involves representing the views and experience of parents whose baby has died to the researchers, so that their study is relevant and their information for participants is sensitively worded and easy to understand.
