VAI & Islington Council – Community Conversations

Community Conversations is a co-production between Voluntary Action Islington, Public Health and Islington Council. Given the challenges presented by the Covid-19 variants, we would like to create an action plan with the wider VCS that enables us to reach and support more local residents in their Covid-19 vaccination journey. See below for the list of meetings taken place in 2022 so far, complete with full video recording, minutes and resources:
