Community Champions initiative

Community Champions initiative

We’re seeking community spirited people to join a team of champions in helping to share key information and advice about health and wellbeing.

We want to reach as many people as possible across the borough by sharing accurate and up to date information we need your help to do this!

What's it about

Initially set us as a partnership between the Council and the NHS to share information about COVID-19, the Community Champions initiative welcomes volunteers from across the borough to share key information about heath and wellbeing issues with friends, family and local community networks. This will ensure our messages reach as many people as possible so we are fully informed and can reduce the amount of misinformation and signpost the support available.

What it takes to be a Community Champion

The primary role of a Community Champion is to share advice and information about related health issues with friends, family and via local community networks.

For example, lots of people have told us they regularly receive information by WhatsApp. You might like to join our WhatsApp broadcast so we can send you information that you will be able to easily share with your network.

Anyone can become a Community Champion and we welcome people from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, faiths, ages and interests to reflect the diversity of the borough.

Champions will receive up to date information about health and care topics from the Council and the NHS in Greenwich to share with their family, friends and community networks. You’ll also be encouraged to share any issues or concerns raised at local level.

Training and webinars will be provided.
