Glasgow Sands Group Meetings

Our friendly and relaxed support meetings are an opportunity for bereaved parents, family and friends to meet others who have been through a similar experience. We offer emotional support (with Sands' trained Befrienders in attendance) to listen, help, guide and give comfort if your baby has died during pregnancy, at birth or soon afterwards.

WHEN: The meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of every month with exception of January when it will be 2nd Wednesday from 7.00pm until 9.00pm.

WHERE: The Albany Centre, 44 Ashley Street, Glasgow, G3 6DS
