University of Bristol & BSWN Covid-19 Health Survey

BAME people have been among the hardest hit by the coronavirus and the lockdown. Black South West Network (BSWN) and the University of Bristol (UoB) are working together to find out more about the pandemic experiences of BAME people living in the South West. This information will enable us to provide better support to BAME communities, who have been some of the hardest hit by the virus and the lockdown. This is a research project led by Dr Saffron Karlsen at UoB in partnership with BSWN. 

This project has been approved by the University of Bristol ethics committee. 
Your participation in this research study is voluntary. You may choose not to participate. If you decide to participate, you may withdraw at any time. If you decide not to participate in this study or if you withdraw from participating at any time, you will not be penalised. 

This online survey will take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete. Your responses will be confidential. All data will be stored in a password-protected electronic format. You will be asked to provide your contact details if you would like to take part in other aspects of the study, such as interviews or focus groups, or if you would like to be entered into our draw to win a £10 voucher, which is open to everyone taking part in the survey. 

The results of this study may be used for research publications, presentations, and policy recommendations. We will not include any information in these reports which could be used to identify you.
