Community Ambassador Volunteers help the North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to develop, implement and improve on our programme of engagement.
The CCG’s Community Ambassador programme was born out of a will to better engage with the local community on the provision of health care services locally. Our Community Ambassador programme has evolved over the last 18mths and Community Ambassadors are now a key part of our engagement plans, assisting in every aspect of new care model’s design, delivery and in the review of existing services.
Community Ambassadors are community minded members of the public or representatives of third sector groups; with a passion to improve health care provision locally. We ask that you live or represent the five locality towns within our CCG boundaries of Aldershot, Farnham , Farnborough, Fleet and Yateley.
Community Ambassadors have volunteered their time to help us actively live our vision to develop and co-design services. We believe service provision may be improved if we can learn more about the views, experiences and concerns of patients and service users. Community Ambassadors help us to connect with local people to understand how they feel, gaining insight. Through the Community Ambassadors’ own networks and affiliations we are able to connect with groups that may have been harder to reach without these local connections. Community Ambassadors range in age from 16-80 and come from a wealth of different backgrounds, you do not need any specific experience and a full induction is given.
This is not a traditional volunteering role. We want you to be able to fit this role around your existing commitments and adapt it to fit your life style. Within the Community Ambassador Programme there are many ways in which you can assist us and you can take on as many tasks or projects as suitable for your availability. There is no minimum commitment required and should your availability or circumstance change just let us know.
