Help share accurate information about Covid-19 with your community

Community Champions are volunteers who communicate with people in their community about important and current subjects, such as the COVID-19 vaccination.

A Community Champion’s role is to:

  • Receive regular updates on the latest Covid-19 guidance and vaccination information from trusted sources
  • Support friends, family and the wider community to remain informed and up to date on the latest information
  • Engage with identified priority groups living in Leeds which include; people with disabilities, older people, younger people and Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, to help people make informed decisions around keeping safe
  • Feed back any local issues or concerns relating to Covid-19 and vaccinations
