Health and Social Care Workforce Well-being and Coping During COVID-19

Working through the Coronavirus Pandemic: Health and Social Care Workers, We Want to Hear From YOU!

Project Information

Are you a social worker or social care worker, who is currently employed or self-employed (agency workers), within any area of practice in the UK. We want to understand more about your quality of working life and coping in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This survey is directed towards social worker and social care workers, nurses and midwives and AHPs.  We will collate the collective voice of you as the front-line staff during the COVID-19 pandemic and publish the findings. We are interested in professional quality of working life, social and emotional wellbeing and methods of coping at this time.
