Would you be interested in sharing your experiences of ‘shielding’ due to Covid-19? We wanted to draw your attention to some research that we thought might be of interest to you.
The research is about the experiences, concerns and support needs of people who are ‘shielding’ and their family members. It will involve completing an online survey, with the option of subsequently taking part in an interview or focus group, if you want to.

One for family members of people who are ‘shielding’ or were shielding and are no longer doing so, which can be found here:
