Community Ambassadors are children and young people who have volunteered as a member of their local community group or special interest group to take on three main jobs:

  1. Tell others about children’s rights;
  2. Tell others about Sally and the Children’s Commissioner’s Team;
  3. Be a voice for the Children’s Commissioner on the ground and to feed into her work
