The project will address the whole of Sunderland in promoting best practise in relation to the Covid pandemic.

Veterans in Crisis Community Interest Company Sunderland (VICS) have since inception in 2018, provided veterans with the support that they require on leaving the forces. It is this support and the knowledge of how to build from the ground up that will enable us to engage the veteran community and support members towards integration with local communities throughout Sunderland. We are now the primary third sector organisation representing veterans in the city, and we are trusted by the veteran community to provide support, information and guidance.

The projects aim is to target members of the LGBT+ community, to give them increased essential advice and guidance regarding Covid-19, and other focused messages, to increase their knowledge and understanding as well as to dispel the myths that surround it.

We are already Covid-19 Champions and have been sharing messages from other Covid-19 partners. We will increase our activities to help empower members from the LGBT+ community, to help empower them to protect themselves and reduce any risky behaviours they may be doing.
