Wakefield and District Sands

Local Support

Our next meetings are noted below. We know that attending your first support meeting can be daunting. You are welcome to contact us before attending, so we can talk you through what to expect and to ensure a warm welcome when you do attend.

We know that these meeting dates might not be suitable for you, or you may wish to speak to someone about your baby today. You can always access immediate support from the Sands Helpline team – their contact details are below.

You can also message one of our local volunteer befrienders through our facebook page (@wakefieldsands) or by email (support.wakefield@sands.org.uk).
