There are a number of ways in which you could help us at WLS. We need help with fundraising, administration, IT and PR, so if you think you could offer any of these skills, then please get in touch.
We also need Befrienders. If you have experienced a loss, either through stillbirth or neonatal death, and you would like to become a Befriender, then we can help to fund your training. The National Sands Befriending page can be accessed here.
If you would like to speak to someone about what is involved in Befriending, please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will phone you.
