We are currently working with ten young people who have successfully completed Ambassador training and are supporting our youth work provision in 2016.
We will begin recruiting again for Ambassadors in September 2016 and would like to hear from any young person aged 16-18 who has taken part in any NCS, Clubs leaders, Inspire Young Carers or Splash programmes who are interested in becoming a Youth Action Wiltshire Ambassador.
For more information please contact Cleo Evans - Youth Programmes Coordinator on 01380 729813 or 07730812758 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Credits For Caring Kids is our volunteering and training project for Young Carers, offering qualifications such as First Aid, Food Hygiene, V and Leadership awards. Young carers can gain credits recognising their volunteering which can be saved towards something which benefits their long term health and well being.
National Citizen Service (NCS) provides young people in Year 11 and 12 from all backgrounds, and with varying abilities, the opportunity and support to take on new challenges, learn new skills and make a difference.
Our NCS project is now in its 5th year and we look forward to another amazing summer packed full of adventure, excitement, challenges and opportunities and of course new friends!
