We are partnering with Mid Sussex District Council to support our diverse communities during Covid-19.

We are creating a network of volunteer community champions from EU, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups, and empowering them with up-to-date information about Covid-19 to share with their communities. We’ll also be asking them for feedback on how well messages or resources are working, and what the communities need.

Online events
We run online events with expert speakers, as well as our regular drop-in sessions.
Topics we’ve got coming up include dealing with life after lockdown, Covid safety in schools and Universal Credit. Click here to see what’s on the programme!

Share your views
To share your views and express an interest in being an community champion, or to receive more information, please complete the survey here.

All survey responses are confidential and not shared outside of our organisation.  Any contact details you provide to receive more information, or to be part of the community champion network, will only be used for these purposes and not shared with anyone. Your information will be held securely and in compliance with GDPR requirements.

Why are we doing this?

There is increasing evidence that people from a Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic background have had a greater impact from Coronavirus.  We are working in partnerships to improve access to information, and creating forums to share insight and feedback from our diverse communities.
