Community Champions are volunteers who help to improve health and wellbeing in Nottingham City.
They work in their local neighbourhoods to signpost people to advice and support on health issues – as well as promoting ways to improve wellbeing.
Organised by Nottingham City Council and local NHS services, the Community Champions build on the strong partnership work established during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Community Champion role includes:
- Supporting the Covid-19 vaccination programme – engaging with the community to dispel myths, identify concerns and provide information
- Sharing health information with your community, your family and friends, local groups, parents, and carers
- Talking to people about your role and encouraging others to sign up to be a Community Champion
- Attending regular online meetings to keep up to date with the latest information and guidance
- Taking part in promotional activities, such as events, giving out leaflets, putting posters in shops, restaurants, pubs, notice boards or community spaces and sharing posts on social media
Could you be a Community Champion?
We’re looking for volunteers from across the city who can help to shape this new network of Community Champions – people who really understand how their local communities work and what is important to them.
You do not need any special skills or experience to be a Community Champion – we’ll make sure you get all of the training and support you need.
The volunteers are supported by a Programme Manager based at the City Council.
