Copy of page: GM Big Disability Survey - Covid 19 Special

The Greater Manchester (GM) Disabled People's Panel is an independent strategic body made up of Disabled People's Organisations from across Greater Manchester. All of the members are disabled people and we seek to influence policy to support the rights of disabled people in GM. We also scrutinise, consult, and advise the Mayor Andy Burnham and the GM Combined Authority. This survey aims to find out what issues disabled people face during the Covid-19/Coronavirus Pandemic and will be used to inform GM services how to meet those support needs. This is why in addition to access and support questions we have included demographic questions to better gather information of how different communities are experiencing the impact of the Pandemic. However this survey does remain anonymous. The evidence this survey provides will improve responses to the Pandemic. So please share it widely and encourage others to fill it in, and we'd be especially delighted if you can assist (safely over the phone) people without access to the internet to answer the survey. 
Please Note: By Disabled People we mean anyone facing disabling societal barriers due to their impairments or conditions and this includes mental health, hearing or visual impairments, learning disability, neurodiverse people, and those with chronic illness or fatigue.
If you are filling the survey in on behalf of a disabled child or adult, please answer as them based upon their instructions/answers. 
If you need help with food or medicine the GM Community Hubs will assist
