Based in Cornwall, Sand Rose, as a national charity, extends to all local authority areas in England and Wales providing breaks for families from across the country.
We do not provide a therapeutic or counselling programme. We simply provide the venue for a break.
Our project base in Marazion, Cornwall, provides a special location needed by those suffering loss and grief. Our three cottages with their sea views and large walled garden offer a unique place to help establish a new normal.
We raise awareness amongst national and local bereavement organisations of the need for this kind of break. We work in collaboration with them (with a nomination system) to ensure that those who will most benefit from a break are made aware of the project.
We also work to raise awareness of the effects of bereavement within society and the importance of the need to grieve and to allow grief to take its natural course.
