COVID 19 information and guidance in community languages
It’s essential that all Londoners, particularly those who don’t speak English as a first language or may not have access to digital resources, are able to get information on Covid-19.
As part of the Mayor’s #LondonTogether campaign, they have been working closely with Doctors of the World to ensure all Londoners with limited English receive the health guidance and support they need. There are resources in an extensive list of languages available.
To help do this they have translated the key Covid-19 guidance below into 15 languages, and have developed free social media assets and ads to make sure this information reaches key communities:
- General COVID-19 health guidance
- Face coverings
- Advice for migrants and non-UK nationals
As the Government’s guidance evolves, they will look to develop this work to include further messages and resources to help communities.
How can we get involved?
