Health Champions are local community volunteers who care about the health and well-being of those around them and their communities. They can bring their own life experiences to improve health and well-being within those communities, including their individual circles of families, friends and workplaces.
Community Health Champions help others to enjoy healthier lives by raising awareness of health and healthy choices, sharing health messages, removing barriers and creating supportive networks and environments. They are able to engage, empower and motivate people to get involved in healthy social activities, shape local services, organise groups and events to meet local identified need and sign post people to relevant support and services.
