What is CovidLife?

Coronavirus (COVID-19) can greatly impact people's mental health and wellbeing. We have designed a survey to understand its effect. Find out more about it here.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is on everyone’s minds. The UK Government message to stay at home is clear but it can be a challenging one. The rules may change over time until the pandemic is in check.  Every person and each household will be experiencing the effects differently. Some will cope well, others won't. For this reason, we feel it is important to understand the full impact of the current pandemic. 

After COVID-19 has passed, some will be able to get back on their feet quickly but others might not. We want to know how people are feeling and coping. This will allows us to think about what to plan for and how to prepare for the future. 

We'd like to invite anyone in the UK, over the age of 18, to take part in the CovidLife survey. If you decide to take part, you’ll be asked questions about the impact the pandemic has had on your life. The survey will include questions on education, your mental health, wellbeing and more. If you have any questions about the survey, visit our FAQs
