Our fantastic YouthNet ambassadors share our commitment to supporting young people to make informed choices, participate in society and achieve their ambitions. They do these in various ways by supporting our media campaigns, fundraising and campaigning activities and taking part in events.
Larry Lamb, Actor
As a famous ‘Dad’ on screen and in his own right, we are delighted to have Larry as TheSite.org’s ‘Dad’. This is a unique role in supporting YouthNet and our online guide to life, TheSite.org, which provides impartial information and support about anything and everything for 16 to 25 year-olds, whenever and wherever they need it.
As TheSite.org’s ‘Dad’ Larry will support us in reaching young people where they’re at, helping to highlight the challenges faced by today’s young people and the need for safe, trusted and non-judgmental information and advice on everything from sex and relationships to exam stress or drugs.
“I know from my own experience that it can be tough when you’re young and you’re not sure where to turn for guidance. YouthNet just have this great insight in to young people that means they are able to help and support them online so their services are there whenever and wherever young people need them. TheSite.org is something I wish I’d come across when I was younger and I’m proud to offer my support to YouthNet as TheSite.org’s Dad.” Larry Lamb
