Dementia Ambassadors

Are you motivated and passionate about providing an excellent service to those you support?

  • Are you influential in your local area?
  • Do you have an appetite for further training and support?
  • Can you influence beyond your workplace?
  • Are you keen to work with other Dementia Ambassadors to build up a local cross-sector network?

The role of Dementia Ambassador includes:

  • developing confidence in using the Promoting Excellence learning framework to improve practice

  • promoting and distributing information about Promoting Excellence learning resources and opportunities within your local area

  • holding small awareness sessions, offering peer support and/or signposting to sources of information and support

  • creating sustainability in improving dementia practice built on effective networking and ambassadorial support.

How might I benefit?

These activities can help you progress through theĀ Continuous Learning Framework (CLF) by meeting your own professional developmental goals, for example by demonstrating leadership, mentoring and communication skills and other transferrable skills.

You will receive monthly emails from the SSSC, keeping you updated on the latest Promoting Excellence developments and supporting you to access learning and professional development opportunities.

Inspiration and resources

The Promoting Excellence: Inspiring dementia practice leaflet showcases the wide range of resources available to support Dementia Ambassadors across Scotland and provides a visual snapshot of what Ambassadors told us inspires them in their role.

It also sets out future plans to support ongoing learning and development for Dementia Ambassadors, and includes case studies from organisations sharing how they use the Promoting Excellence framework.
