Appointing Children Ambassadors in the North

24th July, 2019

Our Anchor Youth Group recently met for a movie night to watch the film Wonder Park. We thought we’d take the opportunity to allow our children to nominate and elect two children ambassadors. The ambassador will be expected to:

  • Be a spokesperson / voice for children in Capstone;
  • Help to shape our service and improve what the services we offer our children and;
  • Feedback ideas Capstone managers and tell us what we do we and what we can improve.

We gave the children a list of the qualities we would be looking for in our ambassadors:

  • Someone who cares about others, and how they are feeling
  • Someone who is a good listener, and always tries to take other’s thoughts and feelings into account
  • Someone who feels that they can be somebody to talk to
  • Someone who is confident, and feels that they can be a voice for children in care
  • Someone who values the individual wishes and rights of children

The children then made their nominations and we finally appointed E and K as Capstone’s Children Ambassadors after answering some very challenging questions. The Anchor Group is an established group as part of North for children over 11 years old. The group meet regularly and take part in fun learning activities.
