Residents urged to complete Covid-19 impact survey
Residents are being urged to complete a Covid-19 impact survey, which features a variety of questions on how Covid-19 has impacted their lives over the last year.
The survey, which is available to complete today, aims to gain region-wide insight into the impact of Covid-19 on people living in the North East and is being supported by Durham University, the National Institute for Health Research and the NHS Integrated Covid Hub North East.
Darlington residents will be asked how Covid-19 has had an impact on Darlington their health and work, as well as their feelings towards testing, self-isolating and the vaccination programme.
Heather Scott, Leader of Darlington Borough Council, said: “We recognise how difficult it has been for people to cope with the coronavirus pandemic in our communities.
“By completing the survey, you can help us understand more about how your day-to-day life has been affected, including your health and wellbeing, work and household finances.
“We are also keen to hear your views on vaccination, the economy and the easing of lockdown restrictions in the town.
“The results of the survey will help to identify additional support people in Darlington might need to manage changes to livelihoods and day to day living. Your responses are vital to informing local recovery plans over the coming months, so please take the time to complete the survey.”
The information will be shared in line with GDPR regulations, meaning it will be kept anonymous, confidential, and secure. If the data report is published, residents are assured that any findings will be entirely anonymous and non-identifiable.
