Project Description


Sands is the stillbirth and neonatal death charity. We operate throughout the UK, supporting anyone affected by the death of a baby, working to improve the care bereaved parents receive, and promoting research to reduce the loss of babies’ lives. Along with partner charities, Royal Colleges (including RCGP) and other stakeholders, Sands is leading the National Bereavement Care Pathway (NBCP). Informed by the voice of many bereaved parents, the project’s aim is to improve the quality of, and reduce inconsistencies in, the bereavement care parents receive after pregnancy or baby loss, be that miscarriage, TOPFA, stillbirth, neonatal death or SUDI.
