Medway Ambassador Scheme

Medway Regeneration Ambassadors

Medway is changing. Spread the Word. Become a Medway Ambassador. Logo.The Medway Regeneration Ambassadors are a network of community volunteers who have come together to spread the message of Medway’s regeneration ambitions and achievements.

The ambassadors’ role is to communicate accurate information among their peers and the wider community at events and in their everyday lives. They also advise Medway Council on how to communicate effectively with the public about regeneration.

The scheme has been operational since February 2008 and currently has a core group of active ambassadors reflecting the demographic and geographic diversity of Medway.

The ambassadors are briefed on all aspects of Medway’s regeneration plans – including the Thames Gateway physical regeneration scheme, social regeneration, economic development, tourism and rural regeneration projects.

If you would like to contact an ambassador or would like to engage an ambassador in an event or presentation, please contact Nicola Moy on 01634 334319 or email nicola.moy@medway.gov.uk
