Beat Young Ambassadors
Beat Young Ambassadors are aged between 14-25 and have established a great reputation for speaking out about their experiences in the media and at conferences and events, helpling to reduce the stigma and educate others. Click here to find out more about the scheme and what Young Ambassadors do.
Thanks to funding from the Norwich Youth Advisory Board and Young Start we are currently able to accept applications from individuals based in Norwich and the Lothian region of Scotland. Individuals in Norwich must be aged 11-19 and applicants in Lothian 14-25. To apply to be a Young Ambassador in these two areas please check the volunteering pages.
New Funding for Scottish Young Ambassadors
Thanks to funding from Young Start, our Young Ambassador scheme has been extended, allowing for 10 new Young Ambassadors from the Lothian region of Scotland to join the Beat team.
