Our Ambassadors

 Ambassadors support us by raising vital funds and also raising awareness of our charity in their local community.  Our ambassadors are the face of our charity.

Our charity ambassadors:

  • Organise fundraising events in their area
  • Attend cheque presentations
  • Give short talks about our charity and the work we do
  • Place collection boxes in local businesses such as restaurants and shops
  • Identify new fundraising opportunities in their area such as Charity of the Year, Community trusts
  • Source auction and raffle prizes
  • Help out at workshops
  • Inspire children and young people with Learning Disabilities to follow their dreams!

We are hugely committed to supporting our volunteers, who make such a valuable difference to our charity.  Ambassadors must be over 18, or if under 18 have a parent/guardian working alongside them.

We also require Celebrity Ambassadors who can act as a figurehead for our Charity.  An ambassador is not a Trustee and does not have any of the legal responsibilities of a Trustee or for the management of the organisation.  The purpose of an Ambassador is to lend high-profile support to the children and young people with learning disabilities supported by our charity. This will, in turn, support many of the charity’s functions like fundraising, campaigning, public relations, marketing and awareness-building for our cause.

David - Young Ambassador (Tonteg)

David has Global Developmental Delay and Dyspraxia.

David has volunteered at our charity’s head office for well over a year now, assisting with administration, fundraising… even cutting some trees down!  David raised over £400 when he walked the Brecon Mountain Challenge walking over 26 miles.  He also did a bucket collection with us at Reading Stadium where we raised over £600, and places collection pots in local businesses, raising much needed funds.

Most recently David assisted us with a workshop at Ty Coch School and thoroughly  enjoyed the experience of working with special needs children, to which he has great empathy and an ability to entertain.

His family are well known in the local area and have been a tremendous support to Follow Your Dreams, especially since we moved our head office.
