As long as you like or feel able to. There is no time limit on how long you can be a champion for though we would ask you to commit for at least a year. We’ll check each year that you want to continue.

We don’t require you to do set hours however as much as you are able to do is sufficient unless we have a specific activity/event that requires this time.

We recognise that this is a new initiative and want to provide development opportunities for any one wanting to be a Wellbeing Champion.
