Child & Family Ambassadors.
At Telford and Wrekin Council we know that families come in all shapes and sizes. Lots of families stumble upon difficult and challenging times and will find ways to deal with their problems, getting the support they need from friends and relatives. There are times, however, when things can seem too overwhelming for families to manage without support.
We believe that feel that families facing difficulties should have the support they need to become stronger, happier and healthier. As with the right kind of support, families can overcome their difficulties.
The Child and Family Ambassador Scheme is a new project to support our most vulnerable children and adults across the borough. We believe that by recruiting and training volunteers to work with children and families who are facing challenges and are in need of support we can really make a difference to the lives of local children and families.
There are a number of Child and Family Ambassador roles - each of which will offer valuable support and will play a significant role in enhancing the quality of children and family’s lives simply by ‘being there’. One of the most important things a volunteer can offer is ‘time’ or ‘time to listen’. Could you offer a little time and make a difference to children and families in Telford and Wrekin?
