Become a Community Champion
Do you want to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by sharing clear and consistent messages? Register to become a COVID-19 Community Champion!
We provide Champions with the latest campaign materials on COVID-19 via email and text message, and at weekly virtual drop-in meetings. They then share this information with their colleagues, family, friends, and communities.
The drop-in meetings take place every Wednesday 12-1pm and 7-8pm, and give Champions a chance to feed back what is and isn’t working and their ideas for future engagement.
Anyone who lives or works in Merton can become a COVID-19 Community Champion.
For more information on the Community Champion programme, email Public.Health@merton.gov.uk
I am a COVID-19 Community Champion because I want to play my part in protecting friends and family, as well as clients and colleagues, and so help to keep Merton safe.
The information we are provided as champions enables me to share reliable and up to date facts and figures about COVID-19 within my private and professional networks and making sense about the latest rules and regulations.
This initiative offers a great platform to share experiences, get information about services in the borough, be listened to regarding possible concerns, and to get questions answered by our colleagues from Public Health.
Join the Merton COVID-19 Community Champions to support your loved ones and the wider community and so to be a part of the solution to stop the Covid crisis.
