Support Meetings

We hold monthly support meetings for parents that have gone through the devastation of losing a baby. It can be a great comfort to meet others who have been through similar experiences and to show that you are not alone on this journey. The meetings are very informal and you can talk or just sit and listen. Family and close friends welcome.

We hold support meetings in Swindon and Devizes.


The Swindon meetings are held on the last Tuesday of each month at Lawn Community Centre, Guildford Avenue, Swindon SN3 1JL and run from 7-9.30pm.

Swindon Sands is set up to support bereaved parents, by bereaved parents. We have a number of 'Befrienders' in the group that have attended a Sands befriender training course and we use our own experiences and empathy to talk to others and allow them to share their own experiences. We are not trained counsellors, but parents who have been through a similar situation and we are here to listen and be a shoulder to lean on. As befrienders, we run the support meetings, support line, support email and attend our events and services, should you wish to speak to one of us.
