Be a Covid Community Champion!

The Covid Community Champions Network gives local people a role in helping their community to get up to date information and make the right choices to stay healthy.

After attending a short online training course, Covid Community Champions will be able to help their family, friends and the wider community to understand the latest guidance around Covid-19, and signpost to other health and wellbeing support. This can be done informally as the Champions go about their day to day lives. Whether they chat to someone while queuing outside the shop, talk to colleagues at work, or question something they see online, they will play a vital part in helping keep local people informed, happy and healthy.

Champions will have the opportunity to attend regular meetings, where they will get to know other Champions, keep up to date, and feedback about how things are going in their community

If you, or someone you know who might be interested in a becoming a Covid Champion, you can find more information and sign up here

The next induction is via Zoom on Tuesday 12th January or on Friday 5th February 7-8.30pm. Joining details will be sent to people who have registered via the link above.

If you'd like to discuss how your organisation might support the Network, please contact Helen Fielden, Covid Community Champion Coordinator on helen.fielden@sparksomerset.org.uk or 07535 800944.

The Covid Community Champions Network is coordinated by Spark Somerset and Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership (SASP), with support from Somerset Public Health.
