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:
- Sharing information with people you know in a way that best suits you. This could include sharing information with family and friends, local groups, parents and carers at the school gates or people you work with, putting posters in shops, restaurants, pubs, notice boards or community spaces and sharing posts on social media
- Talking to people about your Community Champion role and encourage others to be Champions
- Supporting other Champions
- Attending regular online meetings to keep up to date with the latest information and guidance
- Attending events to share information
- Taking part in promotional activities, for example, giving out leaflets or having an information stall at an event
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.
