Skills/Experience Required:

Banff & Buchan Sands are the local group of the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death charity. We have been supporting parents in the area for over 20 years.

We are currently looking for new volunteer committee members to help run the Group, and people to train as Befrienders. Sands support groups are run on a voluntary basis by people many of whom have themselves experienced the death of a baby. However, not all Committee members have to be bereaved parents. As long as you have an empathy and interest in our work we would urge you to get involved.

Befrienders, most of whom are bereaved parents, grandparents or close relatives or friends, are also needed to provide support to anyone affected by the death of a baby over the phone and in person at group meetings. The new befrienders must successfully complete Sands’ befriender training, and a minimum of two years must have passed since their baby died.
