Community Champions – help to tackle misinformation

Can you make a difference in your community by tackling misinformation? Can you help encourage people in your local community to take part in the vaccination programme?

Through the Community Champions scheme voluntary organisations will deliver a wide range of measures to protect those most at risk – building trust, communicating accurate health information and ultimately helping to save lives. The Community Champions will tap into their local networks to provide advice about COVID-19 and the vaccines.

Funding is available now for community groups to apply to the Community Champions fund.

Community organisations have until Monday 1st March 2021 to submit their application to round 1 of the grant scheme.

You can download the Community Champions application form online. See the Kirklees Together blog for more information:

Applications open for round 1 of the Community Champions scheme – Kirklees Together

*Please return your form to candc.projectteam@kirklees.gov.uk before the deadline.

Round 2 of the grant scheme, which is due to go live in the coming weeks, will be open for smaller grants of up to £1000. Community groups can apply for this money to develop their own targeted campaigns to help reach communities in all of our local places.
