This year we are celebrating 40 fantastic volunteers with announcements starting during Volunteers' Week!

Our volunteers are fantastic. Sands is marking its 40th anniversary this year and it is our chance to say thank you for the incredible support and contribution that our dedicated volunteers make across the UK to support bereaved parents and anyone affected by the death of a baby.

In our 40th year, we would like to highlight 40 amazing volunteers. We will be announcing one volunteer every day, starting on 1st June to coincide with National Volunteers Week (1-7 June). Watch this space and check out their profiles below!

We will host a special awards ceremony during the Sands 40th Anniversary Conference, to acknowledge and celebrate the wide range of volunteering involvement in Sands. This event recognises the contribution of all volunteers and rewards 40 volunteers for their dedication and commitment. The ceremony will take place on Saturday 17 November 2018 at DoubleTree Hilton in Glasgow. 

Volunteer nominations for 2018 are open and we invite you to nominate individuals or teams of volunteers. Please contact lorna.delayahu@sands.org.uk to find out more and to make your nomination.
