CAHN in Lancashire and South Cumbria (LSC)

Our work in LSC will initially be increasing uptake of the COVID-19 vaccines via targeted community engagement.

As part of our commitment to the African and Caribbean community in this region, and in view of the current COVID-19 context, we endeavour to: 

  • Build Partnerships across various  sectors  to be the point of contact between communities, voluntary sector members and commissioning agencies.
  • Provide accurate information about COVID-19 vaccines. 
  • Use local vaccination data for Lancashire and South Cumbria to inform targeted engagement. 
  • Dispel misinformation and challenge disinformation about the vaccines through webinar, helpline and face-to-face engagement 
  • Provide opportunities for community members’ questions to be appropriately answered by medical professionals via webinars and helpline
  • Engage in continuous consultation, planning and evaluation to provide solutions to persistent health inequalities and act as a direct point of contact with commissioners. 
  • Champion the work of the Caribbean and African community and to promote its assets, efficiencies and achievements 

We look forward to sharing further update as we develop our engagement activities.
