Video: COVID-19 Community Champions - The MindKind Projects CIC at Birchills Mosque

On 2nd June 2021, a COVID-19 vaccination clinic took place at Walsall Jamia Masjid Ghausia in Birchills, led by Walsall PCN North. It provided an opportunity for one of our COVID-19 Community Champions groups to get involved and support the clinic by:

  • Helping people to complete consent forms.

  • Providing interpretation for those that do not speak English as their first language.

  • Supporting residents with mental health.

In addition, the group spoke to over 100 people on the day about the COVID-19 vaccination.


Sureya from The MindKind Projects CIC explains more about how they supported the clinic.
