Workplace health champions

Workplace health champions are members of staff who promote health and wellbeing within their organisation, working closely with management, HR, and employees to develop health and wellbeing initiatives.

The workplace health champion is a voluntary role.

They would be someone in the workplace who:

  • generally has an enthusiasm and interest in health and wellbeing
  • is approachable and helpful
  • has a basic understanding of healthy lifestyles

See our health champion leaflet  for more information about the role.

Health champion training

Businesses in Barnsley that have achieved the national charter in workplace health are invited to send their health champions on our free health champion training.

We also hold a quarterly health champion network, which is for health champions across businesses, to share good practice and exchange ideas.
