News item posted: 19 June 2017

The Earl's Court Health and Wellbeing Centre brings together several services in one building including general practice (Greenbrook Healthcare), sexual health (Terrence Higgins Trust), dentistry (NHS Dentist) and wellbeing support (Turning Point).

The organisations involved work together in partnership with the aim of delivering care that addresses an individual's physical, mental and social wellbeing alongside their medical needs.

The centre is now seeking their first Centre Champions to share and promote their ethos of community engagement and integrated care. The role asks for friendly and passionate volunteers to support local people and help deliver the Centre's healthy living programme. Whilst fulfilling this role, the Champions will be enrolled on a full programme of training, giving them the opportunity to learn new skills and gain invaluable experience.

Rachel Killick, Community Involvement Coordinator for Turning Point commented. ''We're excited to work with a new group of talented and dedicated individuals. It's a fantastic opportunity to support local people and gain new skills and experience at the same time''.

Volunteers will ideally commit to 2-4 hours a week and will be paid expenses. More information on requirements and how to apply is available on the website. The closing date is 2nd March.
