PEEL – Gloucestershire Youth Ambassadors copy

Welcome to the 11 Ambassadors for Vulnerable Children & Young People in Gloucestershire. These exceptional young adults are employed by Gloucestershire County Council to support the voice of the child in Children’s Services. They have grown in strength and resilience to become mentors for others who have experienced similar childhood hardship and traumas.

They came together to participate in the PEEL programme. As part of this process they write poems about each other and then take a portrait that represents who they are, not just what they look like. They learnt a lot about each other, had a lot of fun and shared some tears too. It felt like one big family and has left a strong impression on everyone that took part.
