We offer ongoing training to our volunteers to help them get started as a Community Champion.

Community Champions will be given a thorough induction to equip them for the role and help them build confidence with difficult subjects.

Ongoing support is also available through peer support sessions, one-to-one guidance, and occasional online information sessions with health professionals.
