This research project is focussing on four groups that may already have been isolated, excluded or marginalised prior to Covid-19. The research is organised into work streams for each of these populations.
The groups include:
Disabilities and long-term health conditions
Domestic abuse and sexual violence victim-survivors
Imprisonment and criminal justice supervision
Refugees, asylum seekers and destitution-facing populations

Services were stopped, slowed, or contracted, despite need expanding and intensifying.
