Many people find that just being in the company of others who have shared a similar devastating experience can be comforting. Our monthly support meetings are very relaxed and welcoming. Everyone who attends has suffered a loss and we are very sensitive to this. Everything that is said in our meetings is private and confidential.


The support meetings are facilitated by a trained Sands befriender. If you have not attended a meeting before, but would like to come along, you would be very welcome. All you have to do is turn up. You do not need to share any details if you do not wish to.  


If you require support in the daytime, please fill in the contact form with your details and a befriender will get back to you.


If you cannot attend on a Monday evening please do contact us and we will do our best to support you remotely or help you find an alternative Sands support group (e.g. East Herts, Beford etc)
