Huntington's disease ambassadors are community members who work with us to help raise awareness by public speaking, talking to the press and media and providing valuable assets for campaigns such as awareness month.
What does it take to be an ambassador?
We are not currently taking on any more ambassadors at this moment in time.
Being an ambassador is really rewarding and helps people to grow in confidence and use their stories to inspire others.
Through our ambassador scheme, you will be one of the faces of Huntington's disease for our charity. We will support you in sharing your story and there will be future opportunities to develop your skills through things such as media training.
What is involved?

- Social media content such as videos or soundbites
- Sharing content for big campaigns such as awareness month, parliamentary news or surveys
