Local support for BAME communities on Covid-19 health information
Connected Voice Haref has been working in partnership with Newcastle City Council, Northumbria Police and Riverside Community Health Project in a response to local community for information on Covid-19. Communities have told us they need easy to understand information about staying safe and social distancing and in easy to use formats.
We developed a one page handout of the key messages people need, and worked with community members to make sure this is written in language that is easy to understand. These will be translated into different languages for everyone to share.
Videos have also been produced featuring members of the city’s Czech, Romanian, Roma, Bangladeshi, Pakistani and Indian communities with information on staying at home and how to stay well to support Newcastle’s diverse communities to follow Government guidance.
