Meet our Action4Youth Ambassadors
Action4Youth benefits from the huge range of knowledge and experience brought by our ambassadors…
Becoming an ambassador enables me to share my experiences and encourage others to take the same opportunities Action4Youth offered me, which increased my confidence and helped me overcome challenges.
Taking part in NCS when I was in year 11 was a really great experience for me and it taught me a lot. Working full time at Action4Youth for two years made me get to know the charity really well and see first hand what great projects they run and the impacts they have. Being a youth ambassador means I can contribute a little towards all the good Action4Youth does.
I am in my final year of Film Production at Westminster University. I love all things film-related and enjoy dancing and singing in my free time. I come from a multicultural family, my mum is Austrian and my dad is Nigerian, so I know how difficult it is for ethnic minorities to break into creative industries. I’m really excited to be a part of Action4Youth to help make a change for the better and hopefully can inspire some young people to stand up for their rights.

He enjoyed a varied career and one that was full of challenges and opportunities, but also one that was hugely rewarding. He was made a Knight Bachelor for services to policing in 2020. After retirement Francis became the Independent Chair of the Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children’s Partnership and the Safeguarding Adults’ Board. This allowed him to carry on his passion of protecting the most vulnerable in society and supporting young people.
