We are so pleased to have a new befriender to add to our team, introducing Frances Doherty who has been successful in her befriender training in Edinburgh in September. Fran lives in Kirkinner, Newton Stewart with husband Roger and baby girl Georgie. Fran and Roger became involved in D&G Sands following the death of their baby boy Charlie in October 2014.
Sands befrienders are available to meet up with parents or family members when you feel you need someone to talk to who knows exactly how you feel and can offer emotional support following the death of a baby. They also run the local support meetings.
