Verve Ambassadors and their campaigns
Verve Ambassadors are women who make a difference in their community. They represent different sectors of our society, including the Armed Forces, NHS, Charitable sectors, Counselling Services, Mental Health care and support. All our Ambassadors, myself included, are women dedicated to making a change for our children’s lives.

Verve Ambassadors; keeping it real through experience.
Our experiences through life, either supporting children in care, being in the care system ourselves or working together with vulnerable children to give them the best outcomes in life, means we understand.
Child abuse; the highest reasons for vulnerable children in care.
Foster care; LGBT and Social Media for children in care.
Fostering families who chase the monsters away for children in care.
Children; the Big things in life and the people who just know!
Looking for Da, with Angels who guide.
Verve; Keeping it real about Mental Health.
The Guilt of a mother with mental health in her child.
Me and my shadow; removing the Black Dog of Depression
Coronavirus is making vulnerable children ‘invisible.’
If children do not get the support they need, the effects of trauma will remain. Mental health issues in children are increasing, thus, children need safe and loving homes and access to the help they need; when it’s needed most.
Verve’s latest campaigns.
Knitting for Babies Appeal
For many women, the birth of a baby is an exciting time; however, for women on low incomes, it became a struggle as Charity shops closed. We put out an appeal and the fabulous ‘ladies who knit’ got together and have donated over 500 outfits and blankets for babies in our community.
Armed Forces Veterans appeal
Armed Forces Veterans got together during the lockdown to deliver home-cooked meals to vulnerable Veterans in the Salford Community. Claire Marie Street generated this campaign, herself an Armed Forces Veteran, and provided much cheer and companionship to Veterans who live alone.
ARMED FORCES XMAS HAMPER APPEALS
Verve and the Armed Forces community has been fundraising through campaigns to provide Xmas hampers for vulnerable Veterans in Salford. The hampers are delivered on Xmas Eve and contain seasoned cheer to show our Veterans how respected and loved they are.
