Champion response!

10/09/21 . Blog

Our health champions have given their verdict on our Men’s Health Champion training and it’s generally very good.

Nearly two-thirds (63%) gave it 10 out of 10 when asked how likely they would be to recommend the training to a colleague. After the training, most felt confident of their ability to be a Champion - nearly half (47%) were ‘very confident’ and a further 42% were ‘quite confident’.

Health champions are not health professionals. Any of us can become one. A health champion is someone who cares about health, wants to help improve it in their organisation or workplace and is happy to talk about it with others, usually one-to-one.

To all the trained health champions who gave us feedback, we'd like to say 'thanks for taking the time'. We asked you if you’d like us to set up some of health champion network and most of you did so we will be doing that. Most popular options were for online meetings (76%) - we’ll try to set the first one up for later this year. 

Meanwhile, if you want to get involved and train to be a champion, we’re adding dates for the autumn right now.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
