New Covid -19 information films in multiple community languages are now available

Covid-19 information videos in community languages including English http://ow.ly/tQF350BezGf

Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (BNSSG CCG), with Community Access Support Service (CASS) in partnership with community groups and volunteers, has made two videos in more than ten community languages about Covid-19 and the lockdown.

These were made to address the need for information for non-English-speaking people in the community who did not have access to reliable information about the outbreak in their own languages.

The videos are:

• Protecting others – with a number of key messages about social distancing, gatherings, where you can go and so on

• Mental health – about looking after your mental health and wellbeing at this time.

The languages are:

Pashto, Kurdish Sorani, Arabic, Farsi, Albanian, Urdu, Bengali, Tigrinya, Somali, Punjabi, Chinese (Cantonese), Chinese (Mandarin), Turkish [please note the videos in Albanian and Trigrinya are not available yet, so any help to find volunteers in both languages would be appreciated].

We hope these videos are helpful and that you will share them with relevant members of the community.

CASS has been working closely with @BNSSG_CCG and local volunteers to help create 2 Covid19 videos, each in Bristol’s key community languages including English. One is on Protecting Yourself, and one on Looking after Mental Health. 

Please watch and share more widely  http://ow.ly/tQF350BezGf

Translated text used for the videos will be available shortly, please get in touch via info@cassbristol.org to request hard copy printed materials for distribution out into the community.
