Sands, the Stillbirth and neonatal charity is a well respected national charity that:

  • Supports anyone affected by the death of a baby.
  • Works in partnership with health professionals to ensure that bereaved parents and families receive the best possible care.
  • Promotes and funds research that could help to reduce loss of babies’ lives.

A strength of Sands is the network of over 100 Groups around the UK, each with its own committee, local fundraising and bank account, working within the Sands Group Constitution.

We are investing in our Network structure to strengthen and develop the guidance and support available to Sands Groups and to review and develop the Networks.

To assist with this we have paid Coordinators throughout the UK, Northern Ireland and Scotland and we are now looking to recruit an additional permanent Network Coordinator for our East region, covering: Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northants, Bedfordshire, Bucks, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Hertfordshire. Although this is a home based role some travel is required within these areas.

This is a key role which helps us to promote Sands’ vision; a world where fewer babies die and when a baby dies anyone affected by the death receives the best care and support for as long as they need.

If you have a positive ‘can do’ attitude with excellent organisational and communication skills, experience of working with volunteers, the ability to remain calm under pressure and work in a confidential setting together with  a strong commitment to, and belief in, the values of the services that Sands provides, please contact us for an application pack at

This role offers an excellent opportunity to make a real difference within the charity. Some travel will be necessary, including occasional overnight stay.

Closing date: Friday 2nd May 2014 at 12 noon.
