Parents Covid 19 Survey - initial findings-

What Carers are saying

We have been conducting an online survey to seek the views and experiences of our membership

The findings so far highlight that while many are coping fairly well, some families are starting to need urgent support

Key issues highlighted include the need for some form of carers' ID when shopping, problems with GP services, social isolation and difficulties in keeping relatives healthy and active.

Many are concerned about a premature return to 'normality' and the possible lack of services and support post Covid resulting from inevitable cutbacks and economic slowdown.

Those with younger children will face difficulties when the lock-down is eased as many children have become settled into living at home and out of school routines

the initial findings can be found here.
