Our Young Ambassadors

Posted by / Monday 18 January 2016 /

At Action for Children our Young Ambassadors are extremely important to us.

They help us understand the issues facing young people in society and they tirelessly promote the work of our organisation around the country.

So who are the Young Ambassadors?

The Young Ambassadors are a group of young people who have experience of our services. They volunteer some of their time to support the organisation. 

Often working alongside our fundraising and events teams they regularly speak at conferences and events, connecting supporters of the organisation with real first-hand experience of the work we do and its transformative impact.

Another part of our Young Ambassadors role is to tell their stories to our supporters, to help them understand the impact we have on individual lives. 

We recently caught up with three of our ambassadors to find out more about them and their time with the charity.

So without further ado, allow us to introduce Cameron, Shamaila and Tamara.

"Working with Action for Children has helped me build my confidence and talk to new people."



"Action for Children helped me a lot with my self-esteem and confidence."



"I was homeless and this is what got me involved with Action for Children. They helped me to sort out my benefits and find a house."


We'd like to thank all of our Young Ambassadors not only for volunteering your time for us but for sharing your stories and continuing to be the youth voice of Action for Children. 

You're all brilliant!
