You’re invited to join our Community Advisory Committee

For more than forty years our community has been at the heart of everything we do. Our work has been driven by your needs and our future plans have been influenced by the unique experiences of loss and grief you’ve shared with us.


Moving forward, Red Nose (including Sands) is looking for particularly engaged and experienced members of the Sands and Red Nose community to represent the voice of bereaved parents in a more formal capacity as members of a new Community Advisory Committee.

The Community Advisory Committee will provide advice and information to the Board, helping to plan and implement a meaningful community engagement strategy and ensuring we remain accountable to our grassroots history.

The committee’s inaugural chair, Nicole Ireland, is inviting nominations from potential members. The committee is looking for people who can draw on their own experiences of loss and support, as well as their understanding of others they have met on their journey, to help Red Nose meet the needs of all bereaved families now and into the future.

Nicole Ireland says “I believe we have a fantastic opportunity to ensure everyone remains connected, engaged and included – and to make sure that all bereaved parents will be able to access the care and support they deserve.”

“If you think you can contribute thoughtfully and constructively to the work of the committee, we’d love to hear from you.”
