Become a Wellbeing Champion

As part of our action plan, we are aiming to recruit a network of wellbeing champions. Find out what being a wellbeing champion involves and how to become one.

About the role

Our Wellbeing Champions will play a key role in developing and supporting a culture that contributes to improved mental health and wellbeing.

To support our Health and Wellbeing action plan and Time to Change pledge our Wellbeing Champions will:

  • take an active part in promoting activities and events

  • encourage colleagues to access relevant health and wellbeing opportunities

  • share best practice and stories of success

  • signpost colleagues and students to relevant resources and services

  • role model and promote a healthy culture within the community

Ideally, Wellbeing Champions will have lived experience of mental health. However, even if you don't have lived experience then you can still apply; being engaged and willing to play an active role in promoting wellbeing is equally as important.

We will prvde a range of training and development opportunities to support our Wellbeing Champions. We will establish a Wellbeing Champions network so that participants can exchange ides, experiences and best practice to support one another in there role.
