Morning folks. Please see a link below for an international survey on how COVID has affected some disabled people and their caregivers

Dear all

I’m emailing to inform you about an international survey on the impact of COVID 19 on individuals with intellectual and developmental disability and their caregivers. I’m sending this information to individuals and organisations who I think may be interested to take part and would be interested to share with others. The survey is led by the UCD Centre for Disability Studies in Ireland and has a team of 26 researchers working in 19 countries. This survey has full ethical approval and is entirely anonymous. We want to recruit participants who are 18 years or older and are either:

(1) a family member of a person of any age who has an intellectual and developmental disability, or

(2) a paid staff member supporting a person or persons of any age who has intellectual and developmental disabilities.

We would also be very grateful if you could share this email with other network members so they can potentially encourage staff to participate. We estimate the survey will take about 25 minutes to complete.
