About Covid-19

Covid-19, wellbeing and inequalities – what the evidence tells us

Although the whole of the UK has been affected by Covid-19 and its social and economic consequences, the impact has been different for different people.

In order to support a wellbeing-centred recovery, we need to understand how impacts have been felt across the population, including how the key factors that drive wellbeing have been affected.

We need to make use of academic research, surveys and evidence from across sectors to build a picture of who has been affected by the pandemic and in what ways.
