Sands Northern Ireland is a volunteer led Group that works to promote Sands’ vision in our area.
We provide direct peer support to bereaved parents, we work with local healthcare professionals to promote their access to Sands’ materials and training and we raise awareness about stillbirth and neo-natal death to help break the silence about this tragedy.
In 2013 in the UK, one in every 137 babies was either stillborn or died in the first 4 weeks of life
Here in N. Ireland, over 3 babies a week are stillborn or die in the first 4 weeks of life.
We support all bereaved parents who have lost their babies, before, during or shortly after birth
We are a focal point for fundraising, with many wonderful and dedicated fundraisers working so hard to support Sands locally and nationally. Help us by giving generously – your donation can make a positive difference and help us to reduce the numbers of babies dying in the UK today.
