Family Champions

What they do

Family Champions are volunteers who support parents-to-be in pregnancy and families with young children.

Family Champions work within the Family Hubs and outreach across the borough. They are trained volunteers and work closely with professionals such as midwives, Children’s Centre workers and health visitors to increase awareness of services, and guide and support families in health matters.

Family Champions provide peer advice and a listening ear, signpost to supportive services, organise groups and activities, and encourage health and wellbeing in the community. Some of the Family Champions are accredited breastfeeding peer supporters and may have specialisms in areas of family health. 

Family Champions have a role in enabling family voices to be heard by services in the communities they serve. 

Volunteers are offered health training, a chance to work with families and shadow professionals, and can offer a pathway to preparing for Early Years or health related careers. 

Who they see

Expectant parents through pregnancy and the transition into parenthood, and families with young children.
