We are delighted to confirm that we have been awarded funding to launch our ‘Community Champions’ programme, aiming to deploy key messages surrounding Covid-19 and vaccination safety.
Looking to raise awareness surrounding being ‘Covid Safe’ and reducing the stigmas attached to the vaccination programme, the Foundation has been awarded the tools to combat these issues within the City.
In a time where vaccination has never been more prevalent, the Foundation will set out to echo important messages regarding the safety of the NHS vaccination programme, increasing confidence amongst the BAME, disabled and elderly age groups.
Working with the club, we are aiming to produce various materials – both written and video – to raise awareness of the current health issues as the UK continues its road to normality.
These materials will include weekly social media graphics to promote the importance of being ‘Covid Safe’ to numerous question & answer sessions – offering the public the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the vaccination programme.
We will also be using our brand to push the importance of the programme, using multiple short videos from current to past players as well as staff situated within the club.
As writing this, the NHS has currently given out 36 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, helping our country and communities return to how it once was.
As a Foundation, we are proud that Wakefield Council has bestowed this responsibility onto us as we aim to use our rugby league identity to get the district moving once again.
