The Vaccine Confidence Grant has been reopened for a second wave of applications as key target areas remain and funding remains unallocated.  


For Wave 2 of applications, your bids must seek to engage at least one of the following target communities, where vaccine uptake is currently low in Barnet: As a partnership we are looking to engage with groups set out below through our health ambassadors, comms and engagement officers, outreach officers and through the VCS grants programme.
