Covid has impacted all of our lives, and one of the things that has helped us to get through it is kindness. Whether you choose to show that by wearing a face mask in public spaces, using hand sanitiser, getting tested regularly, isolating when required to, or getting the vaccine. Each of these things, big and small, have an impact on all our lives.
That’s why, to help us see the end of this pandemic, people across the North East can still look out for each other with Covid Acts of Kindness, and help beat the spread of Covid.
Thank you for sending in your nominations to shine a light on Covid local heroes who have gone above and beyond to #BeatCovidNE by helping those around them.
The Covid Acts of Kindness Community Award celebrates one outstanding individual in each of the seven North East local authorities. Nominations are now closed and the winner will be announced later this month.
Fighting Covid hasn’t been easy. We’ve all made sacrifices, whether that’s missing out on get-togethers with family and friends, or simply not being able to do many of the things we love.
Now that shops, hairdressers, pubs, restaurants and other businesses are opening up again, we all have a role to play in keeping them that way. Further lockdowns or restrictions would be tremendously damaging to people and business owners who have already been through so much. This is our region, our communities, and it’s up to us to look after them.
That means getting vaccinated when invited to, and by following any remaining guidance that could help us reduce the spread of the virus.
Let’s protect lives and livelihoods, and keep the North East open.
This website is here to provide the latest figures and advice for the North East. You’ll find lots of tips about how to keep you and those around you safe, as well as answers to questions you might have about the Covid vaccine.
It’s also the place to download campaign assets, so you can help us spread our message far and wide.

The Covid vaccine is our best protection against the virus, but It’s okay if you have a question about it. The more we answer, the more jabs we’ll get in people’s arms and the stronger the North East will be.
