Amir's Charity Work:
Amir Fights Child Cruelty With The NSPCC
Amir has supported the NSPCC since 2004. As NSPCC ambassador, he works closely with the NSPCC’s schools teams to help children understand what abuse is, encourage them to talk about abuse and ensure they know where to turn to if they need help.
"It is an honour to be appointed an NSPCC ambassador and it is a role I take very seriously. I am lucky that I have always had friends and family around me, encouraging me to follow my dreams – some children just dream of a life free from abuse and cruelty. I hope my appointment will encourage more children to have confidence to speak out and believe in themselves."
