The power of peer-to-peer support during a pandemic

Lucy Watts MBE's peer resource guide - front coverOur Lead Co-Researcher Lucy Watts MBE has put together a fantastic peer-to-peer resource for disabled people on ways to cope with the current COVID 19 pandemic. A Practical Peer-to-Peer Guide To Coping With The Coronavirus Pandemic is available and free to access here.

The Guide compiles the information people need into one resource, around shielding, infection prevention and control, managing care needs and care packages during the pandemic, contingency planning and advance care planning.

Lucy says that it is by no means an official peer reviewed document, nor is it to be read like a manual, and advises that people do their own research too, and if you need to, talk with your medical team and/or CCG or Local Authority before making any decisions.

It supports disabled and chronically ill people, their families and carers to have information and ideas for what they can do and how they can manage during the pandemic.
