The Sands community is unlike any other. A community connected through the power of shared experiences that exists to make a difference to save babies' lives and support anyone affected by loss.

This June, we are celebrating the impact of the connections we make within and beyond the Sands community. Whatever the reason you found Sands, wherever you live, and whatever you do, we want to help you connect with others.

Let's get connected this June. 

Take and share our survey for bereaved parents, tell us about your #MySandsConnection and use our free social media resources, share your story, seek support that's right for you, attend Sands Garden Day, fundraise with family and friends, donate to support our work or become a volunteer

Your connections can help people to understand why Sands exists, share what we do and grow our community so that together, we can save babies' lives and support bereaved families. 

Together, we are connected. Together, we are Sands.
