Community Health Champions
Healthwatch Sutton has been working on a pilot project, funded by Sutton Clinical Commissioning Group, to recruit, train and support community health champions.
The majority of volunteers who joined this programme opted to share health messages within a health setting and are now getting involved in disseminating information about local statutory and voluntary and community services that can support people to live healthier happier lives.
We also have a digital health champion sharing health messages on his website Sutton Voice.
If you support people in a community setting and want to develop your skills and knowledge or would like to be a health champion in a health setting we are looking to recruit champions in the near future. Accredited training will be offered as part of this.
