Find out more about Sands United.
We know that people can struggle to talk about how they're feeling after the death of a baby. This support network aims to put everyone at ease and understands that they will talk when they feel ready to do so.
Playing team sports can aid the grieving process by helping lift someone's mood, give them a focus, help with sleep problems, and reduce feelings of isolation. If you have been affected by baby loss, you will be spending time with people who have been through a similar experience.
