ABOUT THIS SURVEY

Why are we carrying out this survey?

  • People who have been bereaved (lost loved ones) during the Covid-19 crisis often feel heartbroken.

  • Covid-19 deaths can happen very quickly and this can make dealing with your feelings even harder.

  • Even if someone dies and it is not because of Covid-19, many people have not been able to be with their loved one when they died or at their funeral because of social distancing.

  • People from some cultural backgrounds are particularly affected by Covid-19 and can find it hard to get the help they need.

  • It's much more difficult for people or support groups to provide support because of social distancing.

What will this survey help us to do?

  • It will help us to understand the experiences of people who have lost loved ones during the Covid-19 pandemic and provide better support for them.

  • It will help us to know what support people are accessing and whether that support is helpful or not helpful. 

  • It will help us to quickly improve the support that is available locally and across the UK. 

What do you need to do?

  • You do not need to do anything.

  • The first round of the online survey has been completed.

  • A follow-up questionnaire will be administered soon.
