Essex Sands 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.

When bereaved parents, family or friends contact us, we offer emotional support and practical help as well as inviting them to our monthly group support meetings.

You can contact us by selecting the "Contact" button at the top of the page, emailing us at or through our social media accounts:

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.
