Tell us how the pandemic has affected your health and well-being

We want to hear from social workers and social care workers about how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected your health and well-being.

Let us know about your working life and how you’ve been coping during the pandemic by filling out a short survey, which is being run by Ulster University with our support.

By completing the survey you’re helping researchers gain a clearer picture about the impact the pandemic has had on the health and social care workforce.

What the research has revealed so far

This is the fifth survey in a series, which has been looking at the health and social care workforce’s experiences at various points since the start of the pandemic.

The recently published results of the fourth survey reveal that the workforce is still struggling with the changes brought about by the pandemic. These changes have placed extra demands on staff, leading to an increase in stress and lower morale and job satisfaction.

How to take part

You can take part in the survey here. It shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes to complete and your responses are completely anonymous.

The survey is open until 8 July.
