Health Champions in Redcar and Cleveland
The scheme is open to all people who live or work in the Redcar & Cleveland area.
What are community Health Champions?
They are people who volunteer to inspire and motivate their friends, family and colleagues to lead healthier lives. They help people to access the right information and signpost them to other services if needed.
Do I need any qualifications?
No! You do not need any prior knowledge of health issues. You will receive some initial training and have the opportunity to undertake further training in areas that interest you. Some training may enable you to gain qualifications.
What happens after I am trained?
You will use your new skills and knowledge to promote healthy lifestyles within your community when opportunities arise. We will give you support, regular information and access to resources. There is already a supportive network of existing Community Health Champions and you will be invited to join our fun get-togethers.
