Sands NZ National Conference 2017

Sands New Zealand
National Conference 2017

3rd–5th November 2017

Trinity Wharf Hotel,



Every two years a Sands group hosts a national conference that brings together bereaved families, health and caring professionals, researchers and anyone with an interest in perinatal and infant loss, grief and bereavement. Sands Bay of Plenty is hosting the 11th biennial Sands conference in Tauranga in 2017.

The aim of the conference is to provide an uplifting experience for all attendees so they can feel welcome, able to reignite friendships and start new ones with other families and professionals alike.

We want to encourage togetherness in learning and teaching from one another and above all else, be around people who can relate to our own experiences.

​We will strive to make this conference memorable and beneficial on many levels to all those delegates that we are honoured to host in 2017.
