Doncaster PRIMARY AMBASSADORS is a new forum group established in 2020, made up of five children all from different local Primary Schools in Doncaster, their role is to champion the voice of their peers and lead on the Junior Make Your Mark Campaign. They are selected through the Junior Civic Mayor process and begin their one year term starting September until August.
As part of our work to become the most child friendly borough in the country, we want to give our local Children the opportunity to have their voices heard. We are very proud and excited to say that we are the very first local authority in the country to recognise our Children’s voice in this way.
Through their fantastic work the Primary Ambassadors have made significant impacts in representing the Primary Voice of Doncaster attending various meetings with senior decision makers across the borough. To date the Primary Ambassadors have done a brilliant job representing their peers within their schools as well as coming up with ideas on how to raise awareness, educate people about the importance civic pride, thinking green and clean and looking after where you live for the future and beyond.
