We are here to support any person affected by the death of a baby. We offer one-to-one befriending, telephone support and advice as well as regular group support meetings.


We work with people in Bedfordshire and surrounding areas and all of our services are provided free of charge by local volunteers - Beds SANDS receives no funding other than by donation.

Christmas Remembrance Service

Christmas can be a difficult time for those of us whose little ones are not here to share it with us, and the Remembrance service gives an opportunity to spend a little time for our children.  There is a service which includes readings and carols, baubles with our baby's names on which we hang on the Christmas tree.  We also light candles for our babies and afterwards there are cakes and drinks in the hall as well as a raffle, to help raise funds for Bedfordshire Sands.

We would like to invite you the service which will be held at Stewartby Church on  Sunday 4th December 2012  at 4pm.

If you would like to have a reading for your baby, please would you let us have a copy before 10th November, so it can be included in the programme.  This can be emailed to: bedfordshiresands@yahoo.co.uk.

Please contact us for further information.

Due to lack of space in the church, we can invite bereaved parents and their children only, regrettably, there is no room for grandparents too.
