Befriending

IMG 0114We recognise that the loss of your baby is a traumatic and unique loss. It can be an extremely lonely time as you may struggle to find others who understand the confusing feelings and overwhelming emotions you are experiencing. Befrienders are bereaved parents who have voluntarily completed a SANDS UK training course and are qualified to support another bereaved parent. They will be at least two years bereaved themselves and feel they are in a place to listen to another bereaved parent and be there for them. Befrienders are available to chat to on the phone, email, message via Facebook or meet up in person.

Please email info@sands-lothians.org.uk or call 0131 622 6263

if you think you would benefit from this kind of support or if you are interested in becoming a befriender
