Neighbourhood Champions

This page contains information about the role of a Neighbourhood Champion and how Broxtowe Council tenants can get involved in their neighbourhoods.

What is a Neighbourhood Champion?

Neighbourhood Champions provide much needed support to their neighbours, local area and community. They can chat to us to highlight issues and play an active role in improving their estates.

In this role you can make a real difference to your local area. You will have access to FREE training, skills development and support. We can help you to develop your skills and build your confidence, which can be used outside of this role.

As a Neighbourhood Champion (.pdf) (295KB) (Opens in a New Window) you can choose what to take part in based on what interests you and how much time you have. Even a little time given can help to make a big difference.

How much time do I need to commit?

It’s up to you! The beauty of being a Neighbourhood Champion is you can give as little or as much time as you have available. You have the choice to make sure the role fits with your life. You can choose to get involved in as many areas as you want.
