Welcome to the Mozart team!
The Community Champions project launched on the Mozart in late 2012 and got off to a flying start. We currently have an active and passionate team of 20 champions and a waiting list in operation.
Community champions are local people who volunteer their time and make use of their networks to connect friends, families and neighbours with local services, and spread important messages about health and wellbeing.
There is a strong sense of community locally and a wide range of excellent services on the doorstep; however health indicators are poor and people are not living as well or as long as they could. The community champions are working hard to spread important messages and promote local services that can make a big difference to people’s health and quality of life.
These are exciting times and the team is looking for new members to join up and get involved. The time and energy the Champions put in is really appreciated and a key outcome of the project is to provide training, support and guidance to help the champions progress their own careers.
