Young Champions

The Young Champions programme is a chance for our young residents to get involved in local health issues.

Who is it for?

13 to 25-year-olds who want to:

  • tackle health-related misinformation
  • share health advice with their community
  • give their opinions on health issues.

How does it work?

  1. Sign up to be a Young Champion below.
  2. Receive factual and relatable health information for young people via enewsletters, emails and webinars.
  3. Share the information with your friends and family.
  4. Ask us any questions, submit health topics that concern you and share your stories with other young people.
