Luke Pollard MP Member of Parliament for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport
Plymouth City Council are calling for COVID-19 Community Champions across BAME, faith and equality groups to represent their communities and ensure that challenges are expressed and heard.
COVID-19 can affect different communities in different ways and Plymouth Council want to make sure the pandemic response is tailored and meets the needs of everyone across our city. The community has always been key to public health work to promote health equality and it is vital that no community is left behind during the pandemic.
What would being a Community Champion involve?
- Helping the council to understand any barriers or support your communities are facing and to work through solutions to barriers
- Helping the council to get their materials right – do they work for your communities?
To support ambassadors, materials that are translated into different languages and formats (such as braille and large scale) can be supplied – just let the council know and adjustments can be made. In return, Champions will be asked to tell their COVID-19 story, creating videos and blogs that will be shared.
