Community Champions

The Community Champions programme uses a dynamic community engagement process to bring people together to build strong communities and local services. We develop effective solutions for local areas, by giving residents and communities the tools and resources to identify local issues and problems and to come up with their own solutions. We aim to build the capacity of local estates, neighbourhoods and individuals to work together with local providers and commissioners so that services are better designed to meet local health and social care needs.
