The role of a wellbeing champion

Our wellbeing champions are volunteers from across the University who play a vital role in helping us achieve our wellbeing aspirations. In 2014 we signed the Time to Change pledge, and the Wellbeing Champion Network is part of our ongoing and developing health and wellbeing action plan.

Wellbeing champions are instrumental in promoting and supporting a healthy culture at the University of Bath, by raising awareness around health and wellbeing activities and signposting to resources and support services.

Our wellbeing champions are involved in:

  • taking an active part in promoting messages, activities and events
  • encouraging colleagues to access relevant health and wellbeing opportunities
  • sharing best practice and stories of success
  • signposting colleagues to relevant resources and services
  • role modelling and promoting a healthy culture within our community
  • promoting working with wellbeing in mind

Seeking support

The wellbeing champion role is not a pastoral role. It's important to recognise that wellbeing champions are not counsellors, psychologists or doctors who can diagnose health issues or have all the answers. However, what they are able to do is to signpost you to additional support if you are seeking help.

Find out who our wellbeing champions are and how get in contact.

How to become a wellbeing champion

The key attributes we seek from our wellbeing champions are engagement, enthusiasm and willingness to support staff members. In return, you'll gain valuable knowledge and skills.
