What is it?
An ambassador is someone in your school or college who would like to be a representative of the Hospice. The aim is to give pupils who want to go the extra mile for the Hospice a role, and the recognition they deserve.
It is aimed at senior pupils in primary and secondary schools and college students who want to help. There are a few things that we ask all of our ambassadors to do, such as:
- Visit the Hospice at some point during the year
- Raise awareness of the Hospice, for example promoting Hospice Care Week
- Come to one of our fundraising events or organise your own fundraising activity at school, college or in your community
- Learn about the Hospice and the services we provide and how your support makes a difference to the lives of patients and their loved ones.
What do ambassadors get from being involved?
- They are given a Hospice Ambassador badge to wear with pride
- An achievement certificate for their portfolio
- In S5 and S6, they can gain a bronze, silver or gold award and badge
- Learn skills to add to job applications
- Experiences to add to UCAS forms
- Volunteering opportunities
- Support from our Schools, Colleges and Communities team
- Transferable life skills
