Set up a Sands United team

Sands United is a unique way for anyone to come together through a shared love of sport and find a support network where they can feel at ease talking about their grief, when they're ready.

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. 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. 

By supporting in the management of your local Sands United team will help the team progress, succeed and most importantly, support bereaved families.

Becoming a Sands United Manager will involve:

  • Supporting local bereaved families by being part of a network
  • Being an ambassador for Sands in your local area
  • Managing finances and budgets within the team
  • Coaching and supporting players when they need it
  • Managing your team's social media accounts
  • Raising money and awareness of baby loss and our work to save babies’ lives
