Derby Sands has been in existence for over 20 years and since approximately 2008 the group has grown and grown, becoming much more than just a support group. Derby Sand strives to work towards the three core aims of national Sands: 1. To provide emotional support and practical help to anyone who has been affected by the loss of a baby. 2. To work in partnership with health professionals to improve the quality of care and services offered to bereaved families. 3. To promote research and changes in practice that could help to reduce the loss of babies' lives. On November 22 nd Kate Ives took over from Kirsty Wiser as Chair. Kate is supported by a committee of 8 other Derby Sands members, who meet up once every two to three months to discuss issues such as fundraising, raising awareness, improving bereavement care at the hospital and in the community, feedback from national Sands and latest research.
