Refugee Women Connect’s Early Action team joined partner organisations from across the city to celebrate the success of the Community Champions project.  In the beautiful surroundings of Liverpool Town Hall, we shared our cultures and celebrated our successes with guests from Liverpool City Council, Public Health and a huge range of community organisations.


'Community Champions’ are members of the Liverpool community who have been working together for the past year to support those most at risk from COVID-19, to boost vaccine take-up, and to promote health and wellbeing or improve conditions in their local community. Through the Community Champions scheme the council and voluntary organisations delivered a wide range of measures to protect those most at risk. At the heart of this project has been building trust with communities where vaccine uptake has been low, communicating accurate health information and ultimately helping to save lives.


The celebration event not only reflected on the achievements of the programme and celebrated the people who made it happen, but also provided opportunities for organisations and services to learn how they can develop a more inclusive offer, increase the impact of their programmes and overcome barriers they may have when engaging with minority communities.
