About this opportunity

The Red Nose Footprints volunteers are to establish and build meaningful connections with every birthing hospital and shared care GP in Australia, and to equip them with information on safe sleep, safer pregnancy programs and referrals for good bereavement care. Red Nose Footprints is committed to taking steps to save little lives and to increase the support available to bereaved parents when the unimaginable happens.

The Footprints Volunteer will engage with their local network, including GPs, OB-GYNs, family, neighbours and friends, sharing Red Nose information, and supporting the Footprints key goals, supported by the Red Nose Volunteer Coordinator and fellow Footprints volunteers across other areas.
