An ambassador is someone in your school or college who would like to be a representative for the Hospice. We started this scheme in 2013 with the simple aim of giving pupils and students 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
Help us 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 offer
Tell people about the difference the Hospice makes to 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
Support from our Schools, Colleges and Communities team
