Survey of Health and Wellbeing

Monitoring the impact of COVID-19

Social isolation and loneliness may be a consequence of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

In order to keep ourselves and others physically safe from the virus, we are having to change how we interact with each another. But what are the impact of social distancing, self-isolation, and quarantine on our health, psychological wellbeing, and relationships? ‌

We are looking for participants to undertake surveys to help answer these questions. Ideally participants will undertake three surveys, released 6-8 weeks apart. If participants are unable to complete all three surveys, we encourage people to participate in one or two surveys.

Survey One is now open! It consists of three parts: a) Who you are? b) How you feel, live and relate to others? c) How has COVID-19 affected you? The survey can be completed in the comfort of your own home and will take roughly 30 minutes.
