Volunteers will utilise their life experience, understanding and position of influence to help their families, friends and their communities to lead healthier lives. By raising awareness of health and healthy choices, sharing health messages, removing barriers and creating supportive networks and environments. Promoting physical well-being and nutrition, smoking cessation and stress reduction. Volunteers will be supported to empower and motivate people to get involved in healthy social activities, create groups to meet local needs and signpost people to relevant support and services.
