Who?

An Ambassador is a young women aged 16+ who have been affected by the care system and who wants to be part of a group that will start up a support community to empower other girls in the system. Sister System recognises that young women like these are the experts and we are passionate about providing support and a platform for their voices to be heard.

We want to hear from young women who have had experiences or interventions from Social care, CAMHS,Y.O.T, CHYP's and the Police. Those who are survivors of abuse, have grappled with mental wellbeing and have struggled with education, employment and career choices. Those who have an opinion and passion about girls and young woman's life chances.

What?

To further inform our co-production model and ensure that we are an organisation run for, and by, our service users we are launching an Ambassador group for young women aged 16+ to inform our programmes of support and be the ‘voice’ of the charity sharing there lived experiences with stakeholders and supporting their peers.

Be part of a dynamic and innovative community for younger girls and women, help us to help them to avoid or recover from the traumas that you may have experienced whilst in the care system or as part of the journey from teen to woman. The workshops will be led by fully trained and highly skilled dynamic facilitators. 

Sister System offers Ambassadors:

  • Pathways to employment with us and our partners
  • Matched with a professional coach from across our networks
  • Level 2 qualification:

                             Peer Mentoring

                             Leadership

This is an empowering opportunity to voice their experiences and increase their personal development. We will work with them to increase their mental, emotional and social resilience and awareness. They will receive professional development around increasing knowledge as well as soft skills for employment. Communication and interpersonal skills will also be developed.

All who attend will continue to be offered support. Those who want to move towards becoming an Ambassador will continue to work with us for a further term through a series of workshops. They will receive a L1/2 preparing for employment Award and a L1/2 peer mentoring and leadership Certificate. Together with the Sister System unique programme which will embed the skills learnt in the first set of three workshops enabling and enhancing their confidence and self-esteem allowing us to build strong bonds amongst each other and the facilitators
