Sands exists to support anyone affected by the death of a baby. We run several support groups across Kent (including Ashford and Margate in the East) and provide one to one support by phone, email etc. We run the unique Ashford Baby Memorial Garden in the Ashford Memorial Park and work closely with midwives at the WHH and QEQM. We provide memory items and information and fund equipment, as well as contributing towards the costs of two new bereavement suites. We undertake a lot of community fundraising with our Smiley Face Tombolas and this helps us raise awareness of baby loss and the support available. We also promote te fantastic Safer Pregnancy website www.saferpregnancy.org.uk which has some really good advice for pregnant women. We make sure our volunteers are supported and meet all expenses – and despite the field in which we operate, we still manage to have lots of fun! We cover the whole of East Kent and are looking for volunteers from Ashford, Shepway, Swale, Thanet, Canterbury and Dover. The Ashford address is just our postal address!
