Update on becoming a Champion during the Coronavirus pandemic

We are developing a virtual induction day and you can still register to become a Champion in the meantime, by following steps 1 to 3 on our registration page. You won't be able to book an induction but by registering your details, we can get in touch to let you know as soon as there are inductions available to book onto.
