Benefits of being part of the
1,000 Lives Community Champions Network
Meeting and sharing with other Community Champions
As a 1,000 Lives Community Champion you will be able to join in the network meetings, up to 4 per year including our annual celebration event. You can meet like minded people, share experiences and pass on tips and skills, and also create new partnerships and friends too!
Mutual help improves wellbeing
Community Champions not only help others feel better, but they feel better too – by keeping active, being involved and meeting people, and giving their time. Community Champions get more confidence and their own wellbeing levels goes up. It’s a Win:Win situation.
