You are taking part in a research project by Shaping Our Lives about using technology during the Covid19 pandemic. During the Covid19 pandemic many services and meetings have taken place remotely. We want to find out if remote meetings are a good way for you to take part or receive a service. Or, if remote ways of communicating are difficult or impossible for you to use.

This survey is only for d/Deaf and Disabled people. Disabled people are people with sensory, cognitive, neurodevelopmental conditions, learning disabilities or physical impairments, mental health issues and people with long term health conditions.

We encourage anyone who takes part to download a copy of the Research Information sheet from our website and keep it for your records before starting the survey . If you have any questions please contact Becki Meakin, General Manager at Shaping Our Lives:

There is no involvement payment offered for completing this survey. Taking part is voluntary, and you can drop out at any time.  You can skip any question.

There are 6 small sections in this survey with a few questions in each. Many of the questions have a choice of answers and just a few ask you to add some of your own answers. It should take no longer than 15 minutes.

Your answers will be kept anonymous. What you and other people tell us will then be used to tell people in national and local government about how d/Deaf and Disabled people find using technology for remote meetings.

We do not ask for your name or address, but we would be grateful if you would answer some optional monitoring questions at the end. This will help us to make recommendations.
