Young Adult Community Champions hold first meeting

We’re looking for young people aged 18–30 years-old to join our Young Adults COVID-19 Community Champions group. This is just one part of Merton’s overall approach to managing and responding to COVID-19 outbreaks.  Want to join us? Here’s what you’ll get: 

  • The latest information on COVID-19 from the NHS and Merton Public Health so that you can share clear and consistent messages with your family, friends or colleagues 
  • The chance to feedback on challenges or misinformation and shape how we respond to COVID-19 in Merton 
  • Opportunities to work with the voluntary sector and raise awareness of the importance of following the COVID-19 restrictions 
  • Experience related to the pandemic which you can put on your C.V 
  • The opportunity to share your experiences of COVID-19 and how it has affected you and your loved ones 

The group is free to join. Please send your email expressing your interest to: public.health@merton.gov.uk  

Are you aged 13 – 17yrs?  We will be launching the under 18’s COIVD-19 Young Champions in February, watch this space for further details.
