Welcome to I Am Here
Independent data and research has proven that I Am Here works. For every one person that asked for help before I Am Here, three people are now taking that courageous step.
I Am Here is positively disrupting workplace culture. We are empowering Team Members to have the courage, confidence and skills to Show you care, Ask the question and Call for help.

There are many ways to Show you care, depending on what feels right for you, the other person and the situation. The I Am Here: Ambassadors course explores the appropriate ways to reach out and Show you care through different scenarios.
- Compassion – To show compassion is to have the desire to relieve the suffering of another person by showing genuine concern for their situation, acting with kindness and care and being there for them.
- Listening – You could say that listening actively is the most important skill that underpins I Am Here. Listening carefully involves ‘listening with all your senses’ to understand the person’s full message.
- Empathy – Showing empathy is the ability to step into another person’s shoes to understand the situation from their perspective.
- Acceptance – Total acceptance means putting aside your own opinions, values and bias. A person who feels accepted is more likely to trust you to guide them to the help and support on offer.
- Real – An Ambassador is real and authentic. This means showing up as yourself so that the person can also be themselves.
