LiveChat Technology
Sands Australia are a self-help support group comprised of parents who have experienced the death of a baby. Sharing with others who have had similar experiences can assist parents to work through the often intense grief which follows the death of a baby.

UCF approved a grant of $2,000 for the purchase of LiveChat Technology to facilitate their Online Support Service.

The aim of theOnline Support Service is to provide bereaved parents and families with accessible, short-term peer-support through the opportunity to chat online with trained, experienced volunteer Parent Supporters who are able to engage in empathic, non-judgmental conversations to assist with grief and loss.
