Do something great - volunteer!
There are lots of ways that you can volunteer to help keep North East Essex healthy...
Become a Youth Health Champion
As a Youth Health Champion, you would promote healthy living to students in secondary schools. This role includes giving them information about being overweight, the benefits of exercise, drug and alcohol misuse and how to deal with exam stress.
You would be supporting NHS Health Trainers in North East Essex and West Essex, who are employed to provide individual health assessments, create personal plans and offer one-to-one support.
The following schools are currently participating in this programme:
North East Essex
Clacton County High
Clacton Coastal Academy
Manningtree High School
Colne Community School
St Helena School
Colchester County High school for Girls
Tendring Enterprise Studio
Davenant Foundation School
Roding Valley School
For more information, call 0800 731 3133 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Be an activity buddy!
Several clients who work with NHS Health Trainers want to be more active but are nervous about making the first trip to the gym, pool or exercise class. If you can help, contact Trish at Health Champs on 01206 288572.
