Researchers seeks volunteers for COVID-19 workforce impact survey


How has your work in older people’s care homes changed during the pandemic? Did you feel well supported by your employer? Was the government support for your employer sufficient?  

A group of university researchers are looking for volunteers to spare 10 minutes of their time to respond to a survey about the experiences of care home staff during the pandemic, to help inform action by government and employers. Ten respondents will win a £50 shopping voucher.

Researcher Dr Amy Horton (University College London) said: “Uniquely, this study combines analysis of care home finances with voices from care staff about their experiences, to give a picture of how the sector has been affected financially during COVID and the impact of policy interventions.”

Dr Aaron Gain, a research fellow at the University of Warwick, added: “The research is independent and has the support of both UNISON and the National Care Forum as formal partners. It will show policy makers how to support care more effectively.”
