Following the success of the This Girl Can Essex Campaign in 2017, we are looking to recruit more ambassadors and continue our great work in 2018. The This Girl Can Essex ambassadors will help us celebrate Active Women in Essex, highlighting the fact that whatever your size, ability or previous experience, sport can be a fun and enjoyable part of every women’s life. We’d also like the Ambassadors to help inspire other women and girls in Essex to take part in more physical activity, breaking down the primary barrier preventing women from taking part in sport and physical activity: fear of judgement.

In summary, the role of the ambassadors is to:

  • Help promote physical activity sessions for women and girls via social media
  • Signpost women to the This Girl Can Essex Facebook page/Active Essex website and national This Girl Can website for further inspiration and information on local opportunities to get more active
  • Be an inspiration to other women in Essex to be more active

If you think you would make a great This Girl Can Essex ambassador and would like to get involved in the campaign, we’d love your help. For more information please read our This Girl Can Essex Ambassadors Guide 2018_V1.0.

Our 2017 This Girl Can Essex ambassadors included a variety of inspirational women with different abilities, interests and personal incentives as to why they exercise and how they fit it in to their busy lives. You can view the profiles of some of our past and current ambassadors here.
