What is a Community Health Champion?

Community Health Champions are people like you, people who live or work in Stoke-on-Trent, who want to make a difference in their communities. Everyone has different networks they’re already sharing information with – perhaps you work or volunteer for an organisation supporting a particular local community, perhaps you are well connected in your local area or on social media, or perhaps you just want to know how to keep your friends and family safe and well?  Becoming a Community Health Champion will mean you have clear and accurate information at your fingertips.
