We are so pleased to have a new befriender to add to our team, introducing Frances Doherty who has been successful in her befriender training in Edinburgh in September. Fran lives in Kirkinner, Newton Stewart with husband Roger and baby girl Georgie. Fran and Roger became involved in D&G Sands following the death of their baby boy Charlie in October 2014.
Sands befrienders are available to meet up with parents or family members when you feel you need someone to talk to who knows exactly how you feel and can offer emotional support following the death of a baby. They also run the local support meetings.

Next Support Meeting

The next support group meeting is planned for

  • 7th November: 7.30pm

and we welcome anyone touched by the death of a baby to join us.

The meeting will be held at our office at 107 Irish Street Dumfries.

Many people feel that only others who have experienced the death of a baby can offer real understanding of the pain and heartbreak that they are feeling and the support group meetings allow you to connect with other bereaved parents, grandparents and others who share your pain and loss.

The support group is an informal setting and is only attended by people who themselves have lost a baby or their families. You will not be pressured to speak and sometimes it’s nice just to simply come along and listen.

If anyone would like more information about these meetings or would like to express an interest in attending then please email [email protected]
