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.
We run online events with expert speakers, as well as our regular drop-in sessions.
Topics we’ve got coming up include energy saving advice, Covid-19 vaccine FAQs and filling benefits forms (DLA). Click here to see what’s on the programme!

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.
