meet the team
MISS follows the OSCR (Scottish Charity Regulator) guidelines for Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) status which is under the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005. Therefore we have a Chairperson, Sectretary and Treasurer and Committee Members which meet on a monthly basis to discuss matters arising, chairpersons and treasurers report, fundraising/events and any other business.
“I decided to volunteer for MISS because after my first miscarriage, I found there was no support within Aberdeen. When I discovered Abi had set up MISS, I knew straight away that it was something I wanted to get involved in and help.”
“I ensure our financial records are accurate and we meet the necessary reporting obligations required of a register charity. Having had my own struggles with infertility I think the charity provides a great service for those seeking support from others who have ensured similar experiences and also somewhere to turn to for advice.”
“I have been part of this family for almost two years starting as a placement from RGU and then continued to stay where I was chosen to be Secretary. I am glad that I can continue to help the group with some of my knowledge.”
fundraising/ events coordinator
“I was approached by Abi through my role as Community Champion at Asda Dyce to see if I could help in any way. As I had gone through a miscarriage with my first pregnancy, I was more than willing to help wherever I can.”
meet our committee members
“I found MISS at the beginning of their journey, after my first miscarriage. I was so relieved to speak to others who understood what we were going through.”
“After a miscarriage in 2018, I discovered MISS and felt it was somewhere to turn to where others really understood what I was going through.”
“I chose to support MISS after seeing the effects a loss has on families. I work within the maternity hospital and I have supported women/partners through their losses and have an insight in how things could be improved.”
