Community Connection Champion

Community Connection Champions create welcoming, engaging group opportunities that bring people together and promote connection. Could you support those feeling socially isolated and lonely within the local serving community and spare a few hours a week to organise group activities?


Tasks will include planning group activities that are sociable and of interest to the community. You will receive training and have support from a dedicated project officer as you establish a variety of groups. 


The role would suit someone who would like to make a regular weekly commitment of a couple of hours.

A typical group might run weekly for a 6-week period, this could be evenings, weekends or during the week. Face to face sessions are likely to run in community venues but we also want to explore how virtual groups can be used to support those who can’t attend in person.

What you'll do

Key role responsibilities

  • Creating and Planning: working with the Project Officer to plan, develop and organise groups and activities that are best suited to your local serving community.
  • Communication and Teamwork: keeping in touch with the local Serving Community Team.

  • Recording and reporting on activities: sharing activity plans with the SSAFA Project Team, tracking attendance and encouraging attendees to complete relevant paperwork to evidence the impact of the service.
