With Kids help hundreds of disadvantaged children and families in the east end of Glasgow. In order to raise the profile of With Kids so that our public profile matches our professional expertise, we work with exceptional Ambassadors who can help us raise awareness of our fundraising campaigns amongst the general public and business communities.
- Our Ambassadors reflect the values of With Kids:
- Belief that everyone has potential for growth and change.
- Dignity and choice for the staff, children and the families that we work with.
- Respect for the diversity and rights of the individual.
- Inclusion and participation in everything we do.
- Embracing learning, change and improvement.
- Honest and rigorous accountability for everything we do.
“With Kids is so crucial so important, children need a leg up to provide an opportunity to take part in life to reach their potential. Ambition is so important it’s an absolute crime that so many people have had their ambition stifled or crushed. Keep your dreams keep that journey going.”
"It is with great humility and much consideration that I have agreed to act as an Ambassador for With Kids. I have little time for those who tell their kids that there's nothing out there for them. Yes there is, for tomorrow is all about these kids and it belongs to them. Every kid, irrelevant of where they are from, has to understand others' failings will never be theirs unless they allow them to be. A belief and desire to learn or question is something I strongly feel should be available to all. It's not always easy and often involves a lot of hard work, sacrifice and commitment."
David's advice to Glasgow's young people: "Believe in yourself, for you are as valuable as any other. Ask yourself the difference between right and wrong and listen to your own voice. Smile, help and encourage others as I have often found much in return. And remember, there is nothing wrong in having dreams. It doesn't always mean having to reach the stars, although why not?"
I am delighted to be an Ambassador for With Kids. It’s a fantastic charity based in the east end of Glasgow where I grew up. Money raised for With Kids will support Glasgow’s most deprived children and families”.
