Community champions are everyday people who do extraordinary things for their communities and those around them. From July to December, a cohort of twenty will go through a programme of skills training, with access to mentoring from senior social sector leaders.
The programme will consist of five skills workshops, each of which will train participants in the fundamental leadership skills that enable success at a grassroots, community level.
