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.

Charlie - Young Ambassador (Bristol)
Charlie has Asperger Syndrome and suffers from severe anxiety and depression related to her Autism. The last two years have been extremely hard for her, as she has found mainstream school too much to cope with. After 6 months of searching she has now been offered a place in an independent special needs school with other children with Autism. Charlie also has Hypermobility Syndrome which causes chronic fatigue and joint pain, and means she physically can’t keep up with her peers. She has found this to be sad and frustrating. She has very disturbed sleep and is undergoing tests at the moment as its believed to be a form of Epilepsy.
Through all this Charlie continues to be a really caring individual, raising money for a variety of Charities and volunteering her help at a local cat’s home every Sunday. She donates her pocket money to the RSPCA, PDSA, Dogs Trust, WWF and adopted a dolphin, dog and snow leopard. She gave her birthday money to the cat’s home so they could vaccinate 6 cats as others caught a deadly virus. She has recently started to make her own cat nip toys and intends to sell these and give the profit to charity.
She does have her problems and life with Charlie can at times be challenging, but her mum is so proud of her. In mums words Charlie is “sweet, caring and determined to inspire other children with Autism/Disabilities to follow their dreams, even if others tell you that you can’t do it” Charlie is going to enter beauty pageants, be a singer and open her own beauty business and the fact she is so determined and focused, we all believe she will!
