Why not develop your own health project, organise trips and plan events for your family, friends and community?
Charlton Athletic Community Trust is supporting young people to become leaders in health within their communities.
As part of the course you will gain an RSPH Level 2 certificate for Youth Health Champions which is equivalent to a GCSE A - C.
The RSPH level 2 Youth Health Champion qualification is for individuals with an interest in health and wellbeing who want to help their peers develop a healthier lifestyle. This qualification enables learners to provide peer support through an understanding of the individual and social drivers of healthy and unhealthy behaviours as well as signposted local health services. It will also provide knowledge of health and wellbeing issues relevant to learner and develop skills to deliver positive health messages.
It consists of four basic modules to give a basic understanding of the Key Determinants of Health, followed by a research task about physical activity and health facilities for families in your community.
If you are between 16 - 24 years old, you can become a CACT Youth Health Champion and volunteer alongside our Health Improvement Team.
