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.

Joshua - Young Ambassador (Cardiff)

Joshua has a learning disability called Ehlers–Danlos syndrome, and has faced may challenges.  Growing up with his sister and mum, he was moved to a special needs unit at the age of 7 as mainstream was found to be too hard and challenging.  He is now in his last year of high school and still faces daily challenges.  In 2012 Joshua was diagonsed with Chron's Disease.  Taking all of these challenges into account, Joshua has grown into an extremely polite, kind, caring young man, whom his mum is proud to call her son!  Since being made aware of our Charity, Joshua and his mum are very keen to help out, and also to make people more aware of learning difficulties.

We have been working with Joshua to develop his CV, with plans to create a video CV through our project www.mycvinaction.com to assist Joshua in his dream to get a Saturday job in the retail industry.
