Our Young 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.

Cerys - Young Ambassador (Pontyclun)

In February 2009, our lives changed forever, Cerys was born! We didn't know at the time, but Cerys was born with Down's Syndrome.  Cerys is a delightful little girl with a passion for life.  She is a determined little girl who lets nothing stand in her way.  Cerys attends mainstream school locally.  She has an amazing personality and already at such a young age has changed many people’s perceptions of Down's Syndrome.

Having Down's Syndrome doesn't mean Cerys can't do things, she can do anything she wants, just like her peers.  Granted she may be a little slower doing them - but she does!!!  Thanks to Follow Your Dreams Cerys and other children with Learning Disabilities are able to show others that there is nothing you can't achieve, you just have to believe!
