Maeve Carroll from Leeds Community Champions Leeds paid a visit to Middleton Elderly Aid on Wednesday 29 March 2023.
Maeve had many leaflets on show, covering all aspects of health in Leeds. She told me about being a Community Champion volunteer.
Community Champions are people, or organisations, who care about keeping their community informed about staying healthy and well.
As a volunteer you would communicate with people, like friends, family, and your community. Sharing information through one to one or group conversations, online and on social media. Community Champions help to spread accurate information about important subjects to do with keeping healthy and well, such as the Covid-19 vaccination.
Here is What a Community Champion Volunteer does and makes a difference.

Learn new skills

Improve your employment prospects
Enhance your CV

Do Good, Feel Good
