As part of Sainsbury's Carers' Week, we will be in the store raising awarenness of baby loss and of the support offered by Sands and others.
East Kent Sands Charity
Thank you for visiting our web site. Whether you have lost a baby, or are a friend or family member, a midwife or other professional person, or someone that is just curious, we hope you will find it useful.
We are a small group of volunteers (we have no paid staff) who are very busy indeed supporting bereaved families, working with Ashford and Margate hospitals, providing training and equipment, and raising awaress of the fact that every ninety minutes, somewhere in the UK a baby dies.
We have links to the support available from our volunteers and from the national helpline, information on some of our activities, updates on events and fundraising/awareness raising activities, and links to many other organisations. The web site is something which will we hope grow over time so please return to the site every now and then to see what has changed.
And do let us have feedback, please, as we are keen to make the site as helpful and as friendly as we possibly can.
