Sands’ mission is to ensure all bereaved parents receive high quality care and support following the death of a baby. Sands will work closely with the Stillbirth CRE and all its partners and collaborators to help deliver on this mission with particular focus on guidelines and training for healthcare professionals. On a broader scale, Sands will also look to deliver on our common purpose – to reduce the rates of stillbirth in Australia.
