Our Wellbeing Ambassador Programme is a robust training course and package of support that trains young people in evidence based tools and strategies that enables them to effectively support their younger peers to develop wellbeing and resilience. Wellbeing Ambassador training enables young people to work within a structured resilience building framework that supports their peers to develop resourcefulness, initiative and focus on their individual strengths and skills essential for the development or wellbeing. We ensure through the training the ambassadors are clear on their roles and responsibilities that help develop peer wellbeing without taking on their problems and becoming over burdened and worried.
The Wellbeing Ambassador Programme also provides support the to the school or organisation to deliver the programme through co-design with staff, evaluation of the benifits of the programme for the ambassadors and the peers they support, to ensure the programme is a success and supports the bespoke needs of the Wellbeing Ambassadors and the peers they support.

Benefits of the Wellbeing Ambassador Programme
