Community Champions

About Community Champions

Community Champions are working in partnership with West Lancashire Borough Council, through the Community Champions scheme, to improve the health and wellbeing of people who have been adversely affected by COVID-19 and reduce health inequalities locally.

This last year has been the toughest time for many people, but one of the good things is the way people are pulling together and supporting each other, and making sure the most vulnerable in our communities stay safe in the pandemic.

The Community Champions project is supporting this groundswell of community action and is working to get accurate and up to date information about the rapidly changing local COVID-19 situation into the heart of communities across West Lancashire.

How have they helped?

We have recently received a grant of £2,500 from the Community Champion Small Grants Scheme through West Lancs CVS which will go towards enhancing the digital skills of people with a learning disability by expanding the range of training Timesavers gives to include Microsoft Word, Publisher and Excel, together with the Hallmark Card Making Program.

The training will be provided in a supportive environment which makes it easier for our clients to learn new skills without feeling under pressure or stress and can work at their own pace.

In order to improve the social aspect of our project the clients would like us to include some social activities to help develop the friendships they have made on the project and this will improve their ability to integrate and socialise again which will reduce their isolation and improve mental wellbeing helping them to meet their needs in line with Timesavers Objectives.
