Pathways out of pandemic

July 27th 2020

The Coronavirus outbreak and measures to control it have transformed many people’s everyday lives.

How do some of the worst affected people move on?

 

 

 

 

 

The Coronavirus outbreak and measures to control it have transformed many people’s everyday lives. Schools were closed and examinations were cancelled. People were instructed to stay at home, not even venturing out for food or medicines. And some people lost their jobs or had a pay cut, just as costs were going up.

This timely project will develop practical solutions to support people and communities which have been hard hit by measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will focus on three specific and urgent challenges:

  1. Those facing young people leaving statutory education in 2020;
  2. Those facing people who were advised to ‘shield’ and are now re-engaging with everyday life;
  3. Those facing people on low incomes.

Our project will increase understanding of the specific difficulties facing people affected and develop practical and deliverable solutions that Welsh and local government, other public bodies and voluntary organisations can adopt.

 

The project is kindly funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
