Become a Community Ambassador and change children’s lives

by Barnardo's

At Barnardo’s we're looking for volunteers to join our UK-wide network of Community Ambassadors. Community Ambassadors are trained volunteers who deliver inspiring talks and workshops in their local communities, to raise awareness of the importance of believing in all children, regardless of who they are and what they have been through. Barnardo’s ambition is to provide the best outcome for every child. In these challenging times, we believe there are more children suffering in silence than ever. And this is why we need you. By becoming a Community Ambassador, you will be the face of Barnardo’s in your local community, and help us raise awareness of our life-changing work. Our Community Ambassadors engage people about the vital work of Barnardo’s, inspiring them to take action, as they speak with schools, universities, businesses, youth groups, religious places of worship, service organisations, and many more community groups. A big part of the role is carrying out research into community groups, schools and businesses in your area so that you can contact them to offer your services as a speaker. Through your talks, you will engage and inspire support for Barnardo’s, and encourage involvement in our fundraising initiatives. If you’re interested in this opportunity, please apply directly on the Barnardo’s website, by following this link:
