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.

Arthur & Alfie - Young Ambassador (Preston)

Arthur and Alfie were born in 2012 with Down Syndrome.  They were both born with heart murmur and breathing issues.  Alfie was in the baby care unit for a week, and Arthur for 24 hours. 

Arthur and Alfie were in the middle of the DLA claim and ended up on news all over the world.  Arthur was given DLA and Alfie wasn't!!!!!

When they were born it became mums best day of her life, feeling honoured to be given such wonderful children.  They have been in newspapers and magazines all over the world and can now be followed on Twitter @ArthurAlfie.

Their mum Emma told us 'we are so excited to grow up being involved with Follow Your Dreams - and are really excited to support you, and are honoured to become young ambassadors'.
