We're running training in our Surrey Hills office on Sunday 10th March for bereaved parents interested in providing phone support or facilitating local support groups in Flemington & Mordialloc.
Our volunteer parent supporters are the lifeblood of Sands. They provide crucial one-on-one and group support to other bereaved parents who reach out to talk to someone who understands what they are going through.
What does it take to become a parent supporter? There's no magic formula or qualification, but rather we're looking for a unique set of qualities (empathy, compassion) combined with lived experience to ensure that our services are available 24/7 to those who need them.
If you think you've got what we are looking for, or know someone who does, we would love to hear from you https://www.sands.org.au/get-involved/volunteers
