Be a Covid Community Champion!
Posted: Tue, 05 Jan 2021 14:46
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
