Glasgow SANDS is one of many local support groups forming part of the nationwide SANDS network. Glasgow SANDS offers Support Meetings at three hospitals :-
Princess Royal Maternity
and provides literature and training to others across the Greater Glasgow & Cylde Health Board
When bereaved parents contact us we endeavour to help by talking with them and inviting them to our monthly meetings, locations and times can be found on our Events Calendar
These meetings are open and informal and they provide comfort and assistance to the parents, grandparents or anyone affected by the loss of a baby, by bringing them together with others who have a similar loss. Glasgow-sands is a local support group and run by volunteers, who are all bereaved parents.
It is not our policy to make the initial contact with bereaved parents, rather we prefer parents contact us when they feel the need. We are therefore dependent on parents being referred to us by hospitals, health visitors, G.P.’s, social workers, etc. To assist with this we circulate the list of meeting dates and befriender contacts.
The befriender’s list also provides parents with a telephone contact for use in times of stress.
(Please note that all our befrienders are volunteers, and there may be times when we can not always take your call. Please leave a message and our befrienders will call you back)
