Somerset Chamber members SASP (Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership) and Spark Somerset have joined forces to encourage people to become COVID Community Champions.
The Covid Community Champions Network gives local people a role in helping their community to get up-to-date information and make choices to stay healthy.
After attending a short online training course, COVID Community Champions will be able to help their family, friends and the wider community to understand the latest guidance around COVID-19, and signpost to other health and wellbeing support.
This can be done informally as the champions go about their day to day lives. Whether they chat to someone while queuing outside the shop, talk to colleagues at work, or question something they see online, they will play a vital part in helping keep local people informed, happy and healthy.
Champions will have the opportunity to attend regular meetings, where they will get to know other Champions, keep up to date, and feedback about how things are going in their community.
Anyone interested in a becoming a COVID champion can find more information and sign-up here.
The next inductions are via Zoom on Tuesday, January 12 or Friday, February 5, from 7pm-8.30pm. Joining details will be sent to people who have registered via the link above.
More information is also available from Helen Fielden, COVID Community Champion Coordinator by emailing email@example.com or telephoning 07535 800944.
The COVID Community Champions Network is coordinated by Spark Somerset and Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership (SASP), with support from Somerset Public Health.
