Glasgow SANDS is a charity that receives no government funding, all financial support comes from fundraisers and their wonderful efforts.  Losing a baby not only affects the immediate family but friends and the extended family too.    


 All of our befrienders are bereaved parents and volunteers, Glasgow-SANDS supports three hospitals across the city and beyond.  Funds raised go towards to cost of the mobile phones used to support parents, the literature which is provided free to the hospitals, memorial events planned by the commitee and to fund research.

If you would like to hold a fundraising event or join a planned event please contact our committee via our Contact Form or check out our Donate and Events pages.
The Glasgow SANDS organisation produces support leaflets, these are normally provided to bereaved parents during their stay in hospital and can also be collected from our Support Meetings. 

Health Professionals can request these leaflets and we will issue you free of charge copies as required - Please click to view leaflets and how to order 
Glasgow SANDS donate quarterly to the National Organisation who are working to promote research and improvements in practice which could save babies' lives.

We are so sorry that your baby has died.

 

Memory BoxIt may feel very hard to take in the reality of what has happened and to have any thoughts of what to do next. However, many parents have told us how important the memories of the short time they have with their baby are and that they have found it comforting to have reminders that they can look at and hold.

This ‘Always Loved, Never Forgotten’ memory box is given by Glasgow Sands as a way to create some memories which you can cherish.
