Derby Sand strives to work towards the three core aims of national Sands: 1.   To   provide   emotional   support    and   practical   help   to   anyone   who   has   been   affected   by   the   loss of a baby. 2.   To   work   in   partnership   with   health   professionals   to   improve   the   quality   of   care    and   services offered to bereaved families. 3.   To   promote   research   and   changes   in   practice    that   could   help   to   reduce   the   loss   of   babies' lives. On   November   22 nd    Kate   Ives   took   over   from   Kirsty   Wiser   as   Chair.   Kate   is   supported   by   a   committee   of   8 other   Derby   Sands   members,   who   meet   up   once   every   two   to   three   months   to   discuss   issues   such   as fundraising,   raising   awareness,   improving   bereavement   care   at   the   hospital   and   in   the   community, feedback from national Sands and latest research.
