Community Ambassador

Ambulance Wish Western Australia needs help both to raise awareness of the cause and to raise
funds. Our Community Ambassadors play a vital role in representing the Charity at local events and
functions, speaking about our work and the importance of the funds our supporters raise.
Community Ambassadors must be willing to research their local area and network with the
connections that they make. 

Community Ambassadors help to raise awareness of our work by
attending events to talk about our work and encourage others to get involved in fundraising
activities. This is a really important role as it helps us to reach new people, inspire new fundraising
activities and thank our supporters for the work they are doing.

You can volunteer on an ad hoc or regular basis, and we promise you’ll always feel welcome.

Role description
