21/09/2020 - Join Luton's Covid-19 champions!

The Covid-19 champions initiative will launch later this week and the first meeting with the champions will take place next week as they begin sharing key messages to family, friends and contacts in the town to keep us all safe.

​If you would like to be involved there is still time to sign up and be a part of this important initiative in fighting coronavirus in Luton.
 
The aim is to get people from all walks of life involved as Covid-19 champions. Whether you help run a small sports club, social group, frequent a pub or just have a wide circle of friends on social media, your involvement could make a real difference. By using their everyday networks, local Covid-19 champions will be able to pass on, messages to a wide range of audiences. We know we can reach more people and protect more lives and families in this way.
 
We will provide important updates, key messages, social media posts, video scripts, poster templates, and infographics for the champions to share through their own networks.
 
Anyone with additional language skills will be particularly welcome to help us spread the message to others in your community.
 
Once you are signed up as a champion you will get:
  • regular updates from the council
  • key messages  to share with your contacts an opportunity to  help myth-bustCovid 19 fake information
  • frequent zoom calls where champions can share how well or not messages are being received  and provide help to improve our communications, a single point of contact to discuss ideas, offer suggestions and ask questions
Councillor Khtija Malik, portfolio holder for Public Health, said: “With a rise in Covid-19 across the country it is more important than ever that we protect family, friends and the wider community here in Luton.
 
“The community COVID-19 champions will play a significant part in helping us keep safe and fight the virus. Your involvement can make a difference to your social circles and the more we can get key health messages out, the better it will be for us all. Please sign up today!”
