Nina Philpott


Nina joined the Trustee Board as she and her family are past Sandy Bear service users following the tragic loss of her husband and father of their two sons. 

Nina has been a longstanding campaigner for Sandy Bear, gaining 4,000 signatures in a petition when the service was decommissioned due to lack of funding. She was determined along with the other trustees, that children and families have access to the same level of support that she and her sons experienced during the most challenging of times. 

Through her role at Sandy Bear, Nina shares her experience of being a mum with children who have been bereaved.
