The Government has made a substantial effort to ensure that public health communications on COVID-19 reach everyone in the UK. This includes messaging in well over 600 publications and using trusted community voices to share vital communications through community channels.

Important health guidance is also available in alternative formats, including Easy Read, British Sign Language and Audio. This can be accessed via the Public Health England Campaign Resource Centre for health bodies, local authorities and voluntary sector organisations to access, tailor, share and use.

In July, I also wrote to Ministerial colleagues urging them to make every effort to communicate public health messages to all local residents, through a diverse range of media and other channels.
