Survey Support Covid-19

Tuesday, June 30, 2020 - 20:00

Please read the Information below regarding two Surveys linking to Covid-19

Survey 1 -

In these unprecedented times, the COVID-19 pandemic has radically altered daily life for all of us, but some people are finding these changes more difficult than others. Maintaining the minimum possible contact with people outside our own household brings a unique set of challenges, yet for those with physical or mental health conditions, the elderly and those living alone, the challenges are even greater.

Currently the risks and negative effects of self-isolation on a national level are unknown, and it is vital we urgently gain an understanding of these problems and the most effective solutions to them.

To achieve this, ARU and Ulster University are now launching an urgent Self-Isolation Research Study.Taking no more than 15 minutes to complete, this survey will provide valuable data in helping to understand how best to support those vulnerable members of society who will be affected by isolation both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

CLICK HERE to complete the survey where you will find more information and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. All information provided will be treated anonymously, in the strictest confidence and processed in accordance with GDPR.

Survey 2 - 

Adfam is running an online survey to capture the experiences and challenges faced by families and friends of those with a substance use/gambling problem during the Covid-19 crisis in the UK.

Responses will provide them with vital evidence of what families are currently experiencing during the crisis, using this to inform their work, raise awareness through the media and influence local and national Government.

All adult family members or friends of someone with a drug, alcohol or gambling problem in the UK are eligible to take part.

The survey will take no longer than 10 minutes to complete, and is open until Monday 4th May 2020.

Take part in the survey here.
