Haref has been working in partnership with Gateshead Council and GemArts / Gateshead Visible Ethnic Minorities Support Group to produce videos in community languages with key health messages about COVID-19.  Following the success of this work in Newcastle, we worked with Gateshead council to identify relevant languages for residents.  We used the same public health key messages on social distancing and GemArts / Gateshead Visible Ethnic Minorities Support Group volunteers produced videos using the messages in French, Farsi, Arabic and Kurdish.
