This is a series of short videocasts and podcasts to explore some of the issues that people with personalised care are facing during the Covid-19 crisis.
The reason we’re producing them is to hear directly from people about:
- How their lives are being affected
- How they’re finding ways to cope
- Any top tips they might have that might be useful for other people
We hope you find them interesting and useful.
