UK Covid-19 Training Courses

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, communities are increasingly in need of accurate information about disease prevention, stopping misinformation and caring for mental health. RedR UK has been offering free training to ensure that everyone in the UK has access to accurate and digestible information from the UK government and the NHS.

Free online training courses

Thanks to the support of the Whitbybird Foundation, RedR UK developed free online training courses that aimed to address three important aspects of individual and community responses to the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK - disease prevention, stopping misinformation and caring for mental health.

This project has now finished. If RedR UK is able to offer more courses, we will update this page and our social media platforms. If you would like to be placed on a notification list for any updates, please email training@redr.org.uk

Each module was a free interactive learning experience, taught live by RedR UK's experts. They were taken individually or as a set of three. 

To access the modules participants only needed an internet connection, downloading an app was not required.
