Volunteers many many hours of expert computing wisdom to help us make the app work & user friendly
Ben has had the task of writing the first app; an app that would do a lot but be sensitive both to people who may be in palliative stages or not familiar with computing.
Miguel, a graduate of Film School, designed and directed our videos with great ability and sensitivity. Miguel lost both his parents at 13 and offered great care and insight.
Ruth is a volunteer who had been bereaved by a parent when young. Ruth promotes the message of what children go through as well as proofreading support. We are delighted to announce that we nominated Ruth for and she has won a Telegraph British Volunteer Award 2012.
Denise grew up without any parents and was the catalyst for RecordMeNow.
Allie experienced the death of her father when young. She supports RecordMeNow to help others coping with end of life issues by encouraging people to leave something helpful for their children.
This app is dedicated to the too-many children who read and re-read their parents’ birthday cards and who carry worn photos, because there is nothing else left and to those parents who want to give support to their children by thinking of the unthinkable.
