Welcome to SANDS Lothians

SANDS Lothians 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. We are here to offer support for as long as required.

You may be reading this and you have just suffered the death of your baby just hours or a few days ago. You may be bewildered and in shock. You may be wondering how to start organising your precious baby’s funeral. Please do get in touch with us as we can help.

Thank you to everyone who has sent us in lovely Christmas Cards and donations in memory of our precious babies. It really is lovely and much appreciated during this difficult time of year for those bereaved. As part of our '12 days of Christmas in Heaven' we have set up a text code way for us to receive donations and hopefully make it easier. Simply text SNDS12 £5 to 70070 this will donate £5 to SANDS Lothians and help us to continue to help and support bereaved parents across Edinburgh & Lothians. 
You can donate any amount you wish using the same code and text number, SNDS12 £2 to 70070, SNDS12 £10 to 70070.
Thanks to all for your continued support xx
