  • End: 31st January, 2023 @ 7:00PM
  • Online event

Are you a creative or creative organisation interested in running a project about Covid-19 Impact and Vaccine Inequality? Come along to this briefing session about potential funding.

The Southwark Creative Health & Wellbeing Partnership (SCHWeP) are looking to develop a local programme of arts and culture projects with a focus on exploring:

  • responses of Southwark’s diverse communities to the Covid-19 vaccination offer, including the reasons for varying levels of take up.
  • perceptions of local government Covid-19 prevention guidelines and messaging particularly amongst Southwark’s diverse communities.
  • the impact & effects of, and the relationship between Covid-19 & Long Covid and areas such as mental health, isolation, and a general sense of wellbeing

As part of this, they are offering grants of £4,000 to £6,000, for groups to run creative projects on those themes. This could include creative participatory activities and experiences and or interactive performances designed to facilitate responses from participants.

Key outcomes are:

  • Improved understanding of the impact of Covid-19 on Southwark residents, particularly those from the targeted communities below
  • Improved understanding of barriers to vaccine uptake & Covid-19 prevention guidelines amongst Southwark residents of all ages.
    • These may be practical, perceived, or intangible barriers
  • An understanding of why current messaging may not be well received and ways to build Improved trust in messaging and local services
  • Addressing and understanding vaccine uptake inequality amongst the most vulnerable groups through targeted outreach, enquiry and research
  • Responding to concerns about the vaccination and reviewing and sharing & reshaping key messages to make messaging more accessible for targeted and wider audiences.

Target audiences are:

  • Ethnic minority groups, particularly Black African and Black Caribbean groups
  • younger people across all ethnic groups
  • Focus on Faraday, Borough and Bankside, Walworth, Peckham, Chaucer wards

The above groups are target groups in which vaccine inequality is at its highest. However projects should not exclude those who do not fit into the groups identified, as Covid-19 impact & vaccine inequality is seen across Southwark.

Deadline for Proposals:  9am Mon 6 Feb 2023
Project delivery: Feb/March 2023
