Ambassadors Go Live

Our first group of Ask Me Community Ambassadors go live on Tuesday 15th October – deployed throughout the borough in areas where they can add real value to support young people and families at risk of gang activity of the threat of youth violence. We have Ambassadors based in the following areas:

• Chingford
• Higham’s Park
• Leyton
• Leytonstone
• Upper Walthamstow
• Walthamstow
• Cann Hall
• Bakers Arms
• Friday Hill

The team have been received training to help them understand the causes of the rise in serious youth violence, to engage effectively with young people and their families and to promote all aspects of the Waltham Forest Council Gang Prevention Programme (GPP) and the public health approach to the issue.

We are very pleased with the quality and diversity our first group of Ambassadors – we think they will hit the ground running and offer an excellent first line of defence as part of the GPP.

Please don’t hesitate to contact if you would like to access any of our Ambassador team.

We are still looking for a further twenty Ambassadors to make up a second cohort and have a training session booked for 25th January 2020. Please don’t hesitate to refer any suitable contacts, friends, role models to our website – – to express an interest.
