COVID-19 social study

Nuffield Foundation

This project explores the psychological and social experiences of adults in the UK during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The study has five core aims: to understand the psychological and social impact of COVID-19; to map how the psychosocial impact evolves over time as social isolation measures increase and once measures are relaxed; to ascertain which groups are at greatest risk of adverse effects; to explore the interaction between psychosocial impact and adherence to healthy and protective behaviours; and to identify activities during isolation that could buffer against adverse effects. Findings from the project are published regularly to inform our understanding of the ways in which the pandemic is affecting peoples’ everyday lives, identify activities that could mitigate adverse effects of isolation, and support policy responses both during and after the pandemic.

COVID-19: adult social care risk reduction framework: assessing and reducing the risk to your workforce

Department of Health and Social Care

A framework for how adult social care employers should assess and reduce risk to their workforce during the coronavirus pandemic. Employers have a duty of care to secure the health, safety and welfare of their workers and the people who use their services, as far as possible. The framework focuses specifically on how they can support workers with factors which may make them more vulnerable to infection or adverse outcomes from COVID-19 to make decisions about their risks in the workplace. Risk factors include age, sex or ethnicity, some underlying health conditions, and pregnancy. The framework covers: the risk assessment process; having conversations with workers who are identified as being at increased risk; measures that can be put in place, both across the workforce and for individuals; additional useful guidance and resources. This guidance should be used alongside PHE guidance on infection prevention and control and DHSC guidance on health and wellbeing of the adult social care workforce. [Published 19 June 2020.
