Vaccine hesitancy – small grants scheme

12 July 2021

The NHS in Sussex is running a small grants scheme to improve uptake of the Covid-19 vaccine among groups with a lower than average uptake of the vaccination – these include (not exhaustively):

  • Ethnic minority and faith communities
  • People living in identified areas of deprivation
  • Young adults (18 and over)
  • Adults with a physical, learning or sensory impairment
  • The clinically vulnerable or those living with a long-term health need eg cancer patients and people with a mental health need.

Applications are still welcome from voluntary and community sector organisations working with the above groups plus other communities with a lower than average take up of the Covid-19 vaccination. The maximum grant available is £5,000.
