Our Ambassadors are people with lived experience of disability who work alongside staff, peer mentors and members in a range of ways. They work together and with members to organise and host online events, and pre covid19, and in person events.
Our ambassadors now work entirely online, using social media platforms and using technology to answer emails, use google calendar, zoom and google documents. We hope to return to the community once restrictions ease.
Ambassadors facilitate meetings and trainings as well as being peer mentors on our courses, Live your Life and Let’s Talk about Sex. They participate in outreach work such as writing papers and delivering presentations.
