Understanding and aligning link worker and community capacity building activity: A place-based approach in York and Wakefield was commissioned by NHS England and delivered by C4PC in collaboration with Community Catalysts, The National Association of Link Workers (NALW), the New NHS Alliance (now The Health Creation Alliance) and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE).
The Coalition for Personalised Care (C4PC) has released a report identifying key issues in tackling COVID vaccine hesitancy and reluctance.

Amongst growing concern that health inequalities in the U.K. are adversely affecting the roll-out of the national Covid vaccination programme, C4PC is drawing together a broad range of partner organisations to provide valuable insight from a range of perspectives which could help to tackle the issue. We'll be sharing the findings immediately after the event.
