Volunteer as a Community Champion

This is role for you if you'd like to sample a bit of everything, from helping out at family events to sharing our campaign messages

Are you passionate about making a difference to local children’s lives?

Become our next Community Champion

Our volunteer Community Champions are simply amazing. By giving just a few hours a week, they help us reach many more families in Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton by:

  • Helping out at our fun-packed Better Start Bradford family events
  • Sharing simple tips, activities and resources with families to use with their young children
  • Telling families about our projects, website and family newsletter
  • Encouraging more families to take part in our events and activities
  • Sharing your local knowledge with the Better Start Bradford team
  • Meeting other Community Champions and sharing ideas
  • Helping local people get involved in shaping local services

Who can be a Community Champion?

Anyone of any age and background, living or working in the Better Start Bradford area can become a Community Champion.

We don’t ask for any qualifications or previous experience and we provide training; all you need to bring is a real interest in improving the lives of expectant parents and families with children aged 0-3. We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to make a difference in your community.

Why volunteer as a Community Champion?

There are so many benefits to becoming a Community Champion:

  • Build your confidence and gain new skills
  • Feel party of our growing Better Start Bradford Community Champions network
  • Gain knowledge and understanding of early childhood development
  • Gain references or recommendations for future employment (once you have been actively involved with the programme for a minimum of six months and subject to performance)

Here's what some of our Community Champions say...

Better Start Bradford really do put the community voice at the heart of everything that they do. I have never seen that level of community co-production from any other organisation.

I've gained so much confidence. Being a Community Champion has given me opportunities to try new things that a few years ago I would never have done.

I've met so many fantastic people – they often seem very different from me at first but we always find we have a lot in common.
