Leicester Sands is a voluntary organisation run by bereaved parents. As well as offering direct support through meetings, telephone and e-mail, we work closely with our local
hospitals and health professionals to keep aware of changes in maternity services and improve care offered to bereaved parents.
As well as offering support, we also provide the following:
For bereaved parents:
Leicester Sands supplies memory boxes, teddy bears, inkless hand and footprint kits and photo albums to help parents create precious memories of their newborn.
We also supply support information to help parents with the practical and emotional issues following the stillbirth or neonatal death of their baby or babies.
For health professionals:
We offer training opportunities for healthcare professionals on the Sands Guidelines on "Pregnancy Loss and the Death of a Baby", which aims to improve the care given to newly bereaved parents and their families.
To provide the above items, information and training we rely on fundraising and in kind donations, so please support us in any way you can.
