We will highlight some of the different community engagement work we are doing here

COVID 19 Vaccination Engagement

We have been working with Cambridge City Council to deliver a program of projects and activities around vaccinations and COVID19.

Call for grant applications to develop of summer activities in Cambridge based on the theme of COVID19 time capsules and vaccinations.

We are looking for people who can deliver activities over the summer on the theme of people’s experiences of COVID19 and vaccinations in Cambridge. These activities will generate both online and offline content that can be physically buried, stored on the Capturing Cambridge Website or for people to take home.

With up to 5K available via a grant process, if you have experience of running community workshops or know someone who does who might be interested, please feel free to forward this information to others – any help sharing it with your networks and posting on your socials would also be very much appreciated – here is a link to the same information online and social media graphics if you are happy to use them are attached.

Further details, including the application process, can be found here.

Lockdown, Learning and Legacy - The Impact of Community Champion Programmes - in person conference: 6 September

In December 2021, the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities announced £22.5 million would be used to help areas with low vaccine uptake. The money was given to councils to encourage people to come forward and get vaccinated by setting up or continuing with Community Vaccines Champion schemes. They targeted 60+ local authorities with the low uptake numbers.

What has happened since then? How have the different schemes dealt with the challenges that have come with declining public interest in vaccinations and capacity issues at a local level to engage with this approach? What do people delivering on the ground think about all this and what will the future look like for these schemes once the funding comes to an end?

CCVS and Cambridge City Council warmly invite you to our in-person conference in Cambridge on Tuesday 6 September to find out the answers to these questions.
Lunch will be provided.

The event may appeal to those working in Community Engagement, Community Development, Policy, Health Equalities, Digital Engagement, Research and the Voluntary and Community Sectors.
