Wellbeing Champions Project
This is a three year project funded by the Big Lottery. The project will recruit volunteers who will recieve training about how to provide simple health messages to communities in East leeds. In addition the project will deliver a wide range of activities for local community members.
Wellbeing Champions undertake an accredited training program help them understand what wellbeing is and to equip them to support the delivery of sessions in the community
The Champions will support the delivery of wellbeing sessions to people in groups within the community. They will help people switch to healthier lifestyles (such as healthy eating, increasing physical activity or stopping smoking) by motivating them, enabling them to develop plans to achieve this, signposting them to other resources and supporting them while they make lifestyle changes. The Champions will lead regular support sessions, educating people in a wide range of health and wellbeing messages.

The Community Matters vision is to provide a sustainable and effective "hub" of learning, support, advice and guidance, enabling local communities and organisations to grow and achieve through the provision of a high quality service.
We do this in a number of ways through our various projects which at the moment concentrate on working with children, young people and families. But not exclusively. We are able to provide training, learning opportunities and business related advice, guidance and information to individuals and organisations.
