Community Champions is a new initiative designed to support those who have been most negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The aim of the project is to accelerate the offering of helpful advice, guidance and vaccination information to the community to ensure that they remain safe. Our newly appointed Community Champions are here to help accelerate the offering of helpful Covid-19 advice, guidance and vaccination information to ensure that people remain safe, healthy and happy. 

The Community Champions programme is aimed at supporting communities adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. For Wellingborough, the Community Champions Programme aims to support people from Black (Asian, African-Caribbean and African) communities and Disabled people (people with physical or sensory disabilities, learning disabilities and long-term medical conditions). 

Partners include Wellingborough District Hindu Association, Indian Hindu Welfare Organisation, Pravasi Mandal, United African Association, Teamwork Trust and Made with Many. For further details contact.
