Report your experiences during Covid-19

Report your experiences during Covid-19

Have you got something to say about access to care and support or to your treatment during COVID-19?

In Control and Disability Rights UK have joined forces to set up a register to record people’s experiences of getting health, social care and treatment for Covid-19 during the time of the Pandemic.

Their ‘Be Human’movement believes it’s important to maintain a public record of how disabled people and people who require care and support experience accessing care and treatment during the Coronavirus pandemic. It aims to record the experiences of disabled people and people with long-term health conditions, their carers and family members, both good and bad, of getting support so that they can help out where they can, and learn for the future.

Your name or personal details will not be recorded unless you want them to be.

In the meantime Inclusion Scotland has conducted a survey of 822 disabled people and carers in Scotland, the initial results are available on their website .

Respondents reported decreases in both formal and informal care and support as a result of the pandemic, and that social distancing was leaving them feeling very stressed and isolated. Getting access to food and medicine was also reported as a significant concern, with nearly two-thirds of respondents reporting difficulties getting access to food and/or medicine.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
