Many council services are reduced or disrupted. Check our coronavirus page for the most up-to-date information. Read the latest and sign up for updates.

Get Championing!

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

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

What's it about

A partnership between the Council and the NHS, the Community Champions initiative welcomes volunteers from across the borough to share key information about coronavirus with friends, family and local community networks. This will ensure our messages reach as many people as possible to ensure we are fully informed about the virus, 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 coronavirus (COVID-19) and other 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 coronavirus and related 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.
