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.

Rosie - Young Ambassador (Church Village)

Rosie has Down's dyndrome, and is able to communicate clearly using Makaton and speaking.  Her family work daily on speech and language activities and exercises to try to improve her ability to form letters, sounds and words, singing nursery rhymes and phonics.  Follow Your Dreams supported Rosie by purchasing a trampoline, which helped strengthen her lower muscle tone, and played an important part in her ability now to walk and run!

Mum Rachel told us "Follow Your Dreams is the number one charity in our lives, which helps to bring us together with other families with children with additional needs.  We have forged strong family connections with these familes, learning from them, supporting one another, and forging life-long adult and child friendships both with them and the Follow Your Dreams Staff too".  We raised nearly £5000 for Team Rosie at the Charity's 2015 sky dive.  We want to continue to give back to the charity and to help grow their profile, raising more funds which always goes back to helping our children reach their full potential.
