Community ambassadors

We work with people from all walks of life to help us develop our plans, understand our local areas better, produce great, understandable information, and get our messages out to local communities.

We call this group of people our ‘Community Ambassadors’. They play a huge role in designing health services - as well as evaluating the impact of services on users.

This is not a traditional volunteering role. Community Ambassadors dip in and out as their commitments allow and based on which tasks or projects spark their interest. They are are individuals who put their time, experience, knowledge and skills to our disposal - free of charge, except for reimbursement of expenses.

Roles

Our Community Ambassadors may be asked to carry out their role in many ways such as:

  • Volunteering regularly to attend meetings, events or through collecting feedback.
  • Only becoming involved when a project arises that matches your skills, experiences and interests.
  • Becoming a critical friend, occasionally reviewing documents from home and making comment.
  • Becoming a point of contact who can facilitate talks to certain groups of the community.

Each of our Community Ambassadors works to a Volunteer Agreement and Code of Conduct.
