Tameside Champions hosted a celebration, information and networking event at Hyde Town Hall on Tuesday 1st March.

Residents were invited to attend the free event to find out more about Tameside Champions and how they can get involved to build connections within the community and encourage residents to access local support services and organisations.

Launched in summer 2020, the Tameside Champions are a network of local community representatives, volunteers and professionals who share information, support, advice and resources within the community. The group has expanded into four categories within the Community Champions, which includes Diversity Champions, Age Friendly Champions, Nutrition and Hydration Champions and Digital Champions.

The event consisted of information stalls from a wide range of organisations including Active Tameside, Be Well Tameside, Caribbean and African Health Network (CAHN), Neighbourhood Watch, Action Together, Diversity Matters, NHS CCG and many more.
