Community Champions, Championed at Justlife
Many Justlife clients are impacted by the welfare changes that have been coming into effect over the past few months. To help people understand the changes, encourage them to address concerns and find further support, Justlife has welcomed Community Champions.
Community Champions are a team of volunteers trained to provide information and practical assistance around the changes in benefits and to signpost people to support towards and into employment. The Community Champions project is a public awareness campaign delivered by Manchester City Council and Get Experienced.
Community Champions have already successfully attended one drop-in session and will be training Justlife staff and volunteers in June, as well as attending further drop-ins.
