All bereaved parents are welcome. You can also bring a close relative or friend.

Here are the dates and general locations of the next few Manchester Sands support meetings. Full details are sent via post or email if you are on our mailing list. If you do not have those details, or are not on the list, please contact us via the contact form.

8pm  Tuesday, 24th September, Levenshulme M19 2ST

8pm Tuesday, 22nd October, Chorlton M21 0TE


8pm, Wednesday 20th November, Chorlton Library,

Manchester Road, M21 9PN

(Please follow the signs to the side entrance as the main library will be closed. We use this venue as a number of parents prefer to meet in a neutral space rather than someone's home.)

8pm Monday 16th December, Old Trafford M16 0DG

We aim to finish our meetings by 10pm.

Refreshments will be provided.

All our meetings are very informal and are an opportunity to meet and talk with others who understand the pain of losing a child, and to share experiences and concerns.

Please note: occasionally one of our meetings is held in a home where the volunteer host - who is always a bereaved parent - has other young children in the house. Our meetings are also occasionally attended (or hosted) by bereaved parents who may be expecting another child as an important part of our work is to support bereaved individuals and couples through what can be a stressful time. Please contact us via the contact form if you have any questions or concerns.
