Clea has joined us from NCT where she has been Head of NCT College for the last three years, responsible for the training and quality assurance of all NCT practitioners and students.  Having begun her career as a doctor, Clea then worked within NCT where she has made the journey from parent, to practitioner, to senior manager.  She brings experience of working in the charity sector, along with experience in education, medicine, research and in the support of parents.

Following her appointment earlier this year Clea told us ‘Sands is an organisation that I feel passionately about – having been involved with it on both a personal and a professional level – and I feel very privileged to be taking on this role.’

Angela McCafferty, Chair of Trustees said ‘We very much look forward to Clea leading Sands’ ongoing commitment to bereavement support services, improving bereavement care and reducing the number of babies dying in the UK.’
