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.



Sands NI is totally reliant on donations to fund our support services. Without the efforts of volunteers and supporters raising funds for us, we would not be able to provide help to the people that need it.

Sands UK has a dedicated fundraising site full of ideas and tips. Click here to visit the site. They can supply packs of sponsor forms, merchandise for sale, Sands T-shirts and balloons. Check out the site for details.

If you'd like to talk to someone about an idea you have for fundraising, we'd love to hear from you. Please call the helpline or e-mail us at support at sandsni dot org
