Become a Nanny Angel!
Imagine a world where every mother with cancer receives the care needed for her children – so she has enough time to care for herself. Now, also imagine a world where every child receives the support they need to cope with their mother’s illness or death.
The Nanny Angel Network (NAN) offers rewarding positions for skilled childcare providers who are looking to make a difference in the lives of families.
Nanny Angels provide free, specialized in-home relief childcare support for mothers who have been diagnosed with cancer, for those requiring palliative care and for families requiring additional relief during the bereavement period. Nanny Angels lessen the impact of cancer on families, by engaging children in enjoyable, age-appropriate activities to help reduce any stress or anxiety they may be experiencing as a result of their mom’s illness or death. By visiting weekly, building trust and having fun, Nanny Angels help mothers gain the confidence and peace of mind to rest or attend appointments, knowing their children are cared for and supported by knowledgeable and compassionate volunteers.
Nanny Angels receive specialized training in children’s grief and bereavement and receive the support of NAN’s Child Life Specialist.
How you can help
Kindly note, the role is not that of a babysitter, housekeeper or personal assistant – a Nanny Angel’s primary focus is engaging and supporting the children.
*Please note that there are other NAN volunteer positions that do not require childcare experience, including NAN Ambassador and Special Events and Fundraising Volunteer.
