New Communications Officer for SOFT UK aims to raise awareness of the Trisomy Community



SOFT UK are delighted to welcome our new Communications Officer, Sonia Sankoli, into post with our organisation.  Sonia's new remit includes modernising all our communications streams to better support SOFT Families and families who come to us seeking support.  She will also aim to raise awareness of the Trisomy Community and of the work of SOFT UK, to improve families' experiences of service provision, particularly within Health services. 
 
Sonia is a Trisomy parent herself and has been volunteering with SOFT UK for over three years, before she took the leap into paid employment with us: 
 
 
"I'm Sonia and I have been a support volunteer for SOFT UK since 2017. My son was born in 2015 and was diagnosed at 10 days with full trisomy 13. He survived for 6 beautiful months and 4 days and left me and my family with the best of memories. SOFT UK was a great support to me after I lost my son and I got to know more families in my position. I joined as a volunteer to hopefully help other families that find themselves in my situation and keep my son's legacy going with raising awareness of trisomy.
 
I have since joined SOFT UK as a Communications Officer where I will be responsible for managing Soft's social media presence as well as the main contact for communication with new and existing members, volunteers and trustees. I look forward to sharing new and groundbreaking content that will keep strengthening SOFT UK's powerful work."
 
 
We hope you will all join with us and welcome Sonia to the team!  If you have any bright ideas for our communications, don't hesitate to get in touch with her on sonia.sathi@soft.org.uk
