Will expressed his sadness at no longer being able to continue as a Trustee in a tweet about his new role.

Oliver Reichardt, Sands’ Chair of Trustees, said:

“On behalf of everyone at Sands I would like to thank Will Quince for both his work as a Trustee of Sands and as Co-Chair of the Baby Loss All Party Parliamentary Group, campaigning for better bereavement care across the NHS. He has made a huge difference for many parents, like himself, who have been devastated by pregnancy loss or the death of their baby.

“His advocacy and passion has done so much to raise awareness and championing the National Bereavement Care Pathway, ensuring that the vision of the pathway had the right support and resources to become a reality. I wish him well in his new role and we look forward to working with him in Government.”
