Groups and organisations in Milton Keynes could receive money in bid to increase vaccine uptake

Milton Keynes Council is offering grants to local groups, companies or organizations to increase vaccine uptake.

MK Council says: "This funding is available to address COVID-19 vaccine inequalities and to encourage further uptake across all age and ethnic groups, geographical areas and vulnerable groups. These grants present an opportunity for applicants to develop activities that can benefit their communities and it will be a rolling grant.

"Grants ranging from £250 to £5,000 are available to support any work that could lead to further vaccine take-up and an increase in vaccination rates across Milton Keynes."

This could include:

  • tailored communications such as translation services

  • transport

  • website modifications

  • community meetings

  • befriending services
