Stories of shielding: life in the pandemic
When lockdown began, Local Voices created a digital platform – Our Covid Voices –for people with health and care needs to share their experiences of the impact of the pandemic.
This provided the unfiltered views and stories from people at great risk of all the effects of the pandemic, including anxiety, uncertainty and changes to their care. Contributors also discuss their relationships, their jobs and dealing with the everyday aspects of life in the pandemic. This report is a compilation of the contributions, to help inform any decisions taken in the future regarding the way the needs of this group of people are addressed.
