What is a WeCare Ambassador?
WeCare Ambassadors are people working in social care and early years. They share their passion and enthusiasm for their work with others and bring their careers to life to different groups of people.

This can involve:

- Informal talks or discussions
- Attending career or job fairs, events or conferences.
Our WeCare Ambassadors are committed and confident. They communicate well with a wide audience about what careers the care sector has to offer.
