Community Champions

Welcome to the Wirral Community Champion's page. This space has been created to share information about COVID-19 but as we learn to live with the virus we are looking at how Community Champions can continue to Keep Wirral Well by supporting our Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

Over the next few months the Community Champions programme will evolve with the input from members who represent residents and communities across the borough.

If you're already a Champion look out for details in your newsletters. If you'd like to be involved and become a Community Champion click to register below.
