Become a Guideposts Ambassador

Whether you want to set yourself a sporting challenge or host a local bake sale, there are lots of ways to be a Guideposts Ambassador and raise funds or awareness to support our community.

This page explains what the Ambassador Programme involves and how to apply!

Benefits of the Guideposts Ambassador programme

Learn new skills

Fundraising is a great way to challenge yourself and achieve something you haven’t done before – whether that’s a physical challenge or organising an event.

Meet new people and make friends

Who says you have to fundraise alone? You could join an event like a half marathon or get a group of friends to help you with whatever you’re running.

Give something back to the community

The money or awareness you raise will help the most disadvantaged in your community to access vital services that allow them to be included in society.

Let’s get to know each other

If you’ve got a fundraising idea in mind, or you’d like to talk it through with us, then get in touch on fundraising@guideposts.org.uk or 01993 893 560 and join the Guideposts community today!

Support you’ll get from us

Your achievements will be published on the Charity website and across our Social Media to showcase all your hard work that you can be truly proud of.

We’ll provide you with an adhesive embroidered Guideposts Logo for you to wear proudly at events or on your uniform.

Finally, all our Ambassadors will receive a certificate of gratitude from Guideposts for your hard work and support.

Activity ideas

There are lots of ways to raise funds for Guideposts:

  • Set yourself a challenge – run, walk, cycle, swim or club – it’s up to you!
  • Organise your own fundraising event – such as a cake sale, raffle or auction
  • Find organisations in your local area that would be willing to provide us with corporate sponsorship or make us their Charity of the Year

Ambassadors can also play a role in raising awareness of the charity and the work we do. You might do this by:

  • Helping us distribute our newsletter and leaflets to businesses in your local area
  • Wearing Guideposts merchandise at events, or encouraging the local sport team to do the same!
  • Following our social media pages and liking/sharing our news and stories

Sam’s story

In November, Sam set herself the challenge of walking 100 miles in just 10 days, to raise money for our Information & Support service. Thanks to the support of the local community she completed the challenge and was able to raise over £500!

“I chose Guideposts trust as the charity I’d like to represent as the help they give is very close to my heart. I have suffered with mental health issues since I was a teenager, resulting in some very bad life choices which exacerbated my situation.”

“I’m the healthiest and happiest I’ve been for over 15 years and now I want to help others improve their lives, to be the best they can be too.”

About Guideposts

Guideposts is a UK based charity working with people, and local communities, to help them access the support, opportunities and skills they need to overcome social challenges, improve their wellbeing and change their lives.

We run a range of services that are focused on helping people to achieve their potential regardless of their circumstances. We connect people together so that they can experience the joy that comes from friendship, activity, learning, purpose and occupation. We love what we do and we love seeing people flourish. 

Many of the people we support come from the most disadvantaged groups in our society, including children and adults with additional needs and disabilities, people with mental health problems, older people with dementia and other neuro-degenerative conditions, and the families or carers of all these groups. We believe that all people should be equally valued and have an equal chance to live the best life possible, that is why we do what we do. 

Together we are the Guideposts community, helping each other to achieve better wellbeing.
