Sands National Conference 2017 "Beyond the Waves"
Kia ora koutou - welcome to the Sands National Conference website.
Sands is a voluntary, non-profit organisation that supports parents, families and whānau when a baby or infant dies. We provide a range of services to bereaved families and the people who care for them.
Every two years a Sands group hosts a national conference that brings together bereaved families, health and caring professionals, researchers and anyone with an interest in perinatal and infant loss, grief and bereavement. Sands Bay of Plenty hosted the 11th biennial Sands conference in Tauranga on 3-5 November 2017. The dates or location for the 2019 conference has not yet been decided.
Please keep an eye on this website in the future and join our Facebook page so you do not miss out on the Sands Conference for 2019!!
