Are you passionate about the health of yourself, your family/friends and community?
If so, have you thought about becoming a Health Champion?
Health Champions are local community volunteers who care about the health and well-being of those around them.
Health Champions help others to enjoy healthier lives by raising awareness of health and healthy choices, sharing healthy messages, removing barriers and creating supportive networks. They are able to engage, empower and motivate people to get involved in healthy social activities, shape services to meet locally identified need and sign post people to relevant support and services.
As well as raising awareness there are opportunities for you to become more active in your community such as representing health at local community events or delivering your own health drop-in.
You will be fully trained and supported in your role and will gain a recognised accredited qualification with the Royal Society of Public Health.
Time commitment is flexible, but on average one hour per week would be helpful to the role.
Benefits to you include access to accredited training, improving your own emotional and physical health, being involved in your local community and make new friends and gain new skills.
