Become a Community Ambassador

If you are enthusiastic, passionate about raising awareness about Inherited Metabolic Disorders, have good organisational skills, and the ability to communicate Metabolic Support UK’s message effectively, you may have the perfect skills to be a Community Ambassador and we would love to hear from you!

Becoming an Ambassador is a great way to make a positive difference to your community. Community Ambassadors will represent Metabolic Support UK on a voluntary basis with the purpose of raising awareness about the work we undertake, helping us with supporting others, and fundraising.

The role is flexible and will be based in your local area. As a Community Ambassador, you will be expected to commit to organising 2-3 fundraising activities per year, as well as giving a talk or presentation to at least one community group, or organising one event that brings families and patients together.

We will be there to support you with an initial induction day. For our first group of Ambassadors this will take place in Manchester on Friday 9th November 2018.

Community Ambassadors will receive ongoing support from a designated Ambassador Co-ordinator and receive a pre-prepared presentation for your Community Ambassador appointments, which you can customise to share your own story.
