Community Southwark is supporting Southwark Council to launch a Community Health Ambassadors Network to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Are you a voluntary sector worker, a passionate volunteer, or a local resident or employee wanting to make a difference during this difficult time?

Signing up to the Community Health Ambassadors Network is a way you can help prevent the spread of COVID-19, make your community's voice heard, and reduce health inequalities. 

What is a Community Health Ambassador?

We will provide Community Health Ambassadors with the most up-to-date and accurate COVID-19 health information, which you will pass on to your networks, communities, friends and family, using whatever methods you prefer. You can contribute as much as you like, and you can leave the Network at any time. 

As an Ambassador, we also want you to tell us about difficulties and barriers you think people face in receiving and following guidelines, suggest any support and resources that would help, and pass on questions that people are asking. This feedback will be passed onto local services, such as Southwark Council’s Public Health team, to help them more effectively respond to vulnerable communities. 

Ambassadors will receive training on the key public health messages relating to COVID-19 as well as further training opportunities throughout the programme.
