The impact of COVID-19 on social care profile

Final theme: Profile - how has COVID-19 impacted the profile of social care services?


Thank you to those who have participated in or circulated the Care Futures surveys so far. If you haven't done so yet, you can still access the surveys here:

The final survey is focused on the theme of ‘Profile’.

In this theme we are interested to explore perceptions of the independent social care sector during the pandemic, relationships with the media, opportunities for enhancing understanding, awareness and profile and the future potential of the sector in relation to its profile.

The survey has 4 sections: Perception, understanding & awareness; Value & recognition; Media, publicity & scrutiny; and Future profile.

If you would like to see the questions in advance to help you complete the survey fully, you can download a PDF of the survey here - download survey questions.

You can also download Word copies of the survey to complete by hand or to distribute to others - download Word survey questions.

We would appreciate your support in circulating the survey as widely as possible across your networks, including to any individuals who access care and support and their families who may like to share their experiences.

If you don’t feel that you have had direct working experience with the independent care sector during the pandemic but you would like to be involved in the second phase of the programme, please let us know at [email protected] and we will be in contact in due course.
