Celebrating Language Diversity in the North East and North Cumbria
How to take part
People across the North East and North Cumbria speak many languages and, of course, lots of local dialects. It's important that everybody's voice is heard in health and social care research, so that we can all live healthier, better lives. We're inviting you to add your languages and dialects to the map.
Please follow this link to take you to the map: https://padlet.com/rdsnenc/languages
Click on the pink '+' button, and search for your location (no need to add your exact address). When a box pops up on the map, type in the names of the languages that you speak, and anything else you would like to share about your language or culture. Click anywhere on the map behind your post, or tap 'save' on a mobile, and that's it! When you're finished, please send us an email at [email protected] and [email protected] to say "hello", "bonjour" or "السلام عليكم", and find out how you can use your voice to help change lives across our region.
NHS researchers across the North East, Cumbria, Yorkshire and Humber regions are working together to help find vaccines for COVID-19.
We are currently recruiting participants for the next stage of clinical trials to help this research and it is important that we include as many people as possible from all backgrounds, communities and ages. We are creating videos in different languages that explain how you can help with this research by signing up to the National Vaccine Registry Videos have so far been created in Sylheti and Hindi and we are currently creating videos in other languages.
By listening to the views of diverse communities, health and social care researchers can achieve better outcomes for everyone.
