Young Ambassadors standing outside Little Havens Hospice

young ambassadors

Young Ambassadors is an opportunity to gain hands on experience at Havens Hospices, by learning skills which will strengthen your future job prospects or university applications.

"I would recommend this experience to anyone who wants to get involved and make a difference.  I have been so lucky to have been given the opportunity to volunteer and after every shift I am blessed with the feeling that I have helped and made a difference to someone’s day."Emily

"I would say that my experience at the Hospice has definitely been worthwhile and I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in caring for others or just helping to make a difference to someone’s life. I will carry the skills that I have learnt during my time for the rest of my life and I am grateful for the opportunity."Kieran
