SCC seeks participants in Covid impacts survey

Sheffield City Council has developed a population-level questionnaire to support its understanding of the positive and negative impacts of Covid-19 in Sheffield within our communities.

The Council is seeking stakeholders to undertake the survey, which went live on Tuesday 21 July and will run for six weeks. It typically take around 10-15 minutes to complete the questionnaire.

This questionnaire asks a range of questions (mainly multiple choice) about how the experience of Covid-19 has been in terms of loneliness, mental health, employment, income, health behaviours, active travel, access to services, where people get their information from  on coronavirus, digital inclusion, home schooling, people’s experience of shielding or having Covid-19, information about health conditions and managing these during the pandemic, future concerns people may have about the virus.

This questionnaire is really important as it will allow us to gain more information in the areas where we have gaps in data locally. We can then ensure we tailor our response and services to meet the needs described by communities.

This will be in addition to the rich insights gained from stakeholders, local groups and services..

Please share the questionnaire across your networks. We can supply printed copies as needed. It does cover a lot of issues as we know there are many and it the impact is complex and overlapping.
