Who we are: 

SANDS Lothians are a local charity who offers support, understanding and help, both of a practical and emotional nature to bereaved parents who have experienced the death of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth or soon after birth.

What we offer: 

We are here to offer support for as long as required and offer person-centred support through various monthly support groups, one to one befriending and free counselling both in Edinburgh and West Lothian.

All our staff are bereaved parents so understand this journey and can validate those intense feelings. We meet with families during the day so families can chat in private in our lovely befriending room in Edinburgh or West Lothian and also host various monthly support meetings (we have 4 in total) where families can meet with others who understand the journey they have found themselves on.  We supply memory bags to the local hospitals which include photograph albums and we fund SANDS UK training in our area. We also supply equipment to the hospital including knitting for babies, bedding, furniture and printers.
