Community Champions

Have you got skills or experience you can share with people trying to overcome barriers that get in the way of making healthy lifestyle changes? Community Champions are people from across the Rochdale Borough who make a positive difference by helping others. They are real people, men and women of all ages and backgrounds who have the time, commitment and skills to offer support. Some have professional backgrounds and use those skills as a volunteer. Others are ‘expert by experience’ or have developed their skills through training.
