Read more about the This Girl Can Essex Ambassador Roles:

To be an ambassador, you will need to be passionate about helping other women and girls, as well a championing movement for your mental and physical wellbeing.

As a This Girl Can Ambassador, we want you to share your physical activity journey, your achievements (no matter how big or small) and to encourage others along the way. Together, we can drive change and inspire more women and girls to get moving, all across the county.


We have refreshed our ambassador roles, and these are detailed below:

Move Cheerleader

You are the everyday woman finding your active. By sharing your personal story and updates along the journey, you will inspire others to follow in your footsteps.

As a Move Cheerleader, you champion the fact that there’s an activity for everyone. You might buddy up, helping other women take that first step to lead an active and healthy life.

Change Maker

By encouraging women to move in their own way, you will improve lines of communication and offer support for them to find an activity that’s right for them.

You will motivate other women to get active and make positive changes to their life. The Change Makers will be pioneers to support women through the delivery of activity, reaching out to women across the county.


All ambassadors are encouraged to consider:

  • Get friends involved and ‘Like’ the This Girl Can Essex Facebook page and visit our This Girl Can page on our Active Essex website for specific information on women only activity groups in Essex, funding for women’s projects, guide for clubs on how to attract more females and lots more!
  • You might be interested in forming a local working group with other ambassadors in your district for women’s sport and physical activity. Join up and then email us at
  • Love your sport or activity? In addition to the roles you may want to talk to us about how we might help upskill you to help deliver to other women in your area.
  • Already delivering sport in your area? Talk to us about how we might help you grow and market your idea further. Contact us at</a
