Project

COVID-19 Rapid Response. Sustaining the resilience and wellbeing of frontline community based care and support workers to vulnerable older people during a time of crisis

Funded by Chief Scientist Office.

This COVID-19 rapid response project will examine factors influencing the resilience of community based care organisations for older people in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Using organisations within two pre-existing research projects currently taking place the proposed project will identify factors influencing their resilience and the resilience of the services they provide. the project will use online qualitative methods (ethnographic field notes/diaries, interviews, focus groups) and action learning sets to identify factors influencing resilience and organisation's response to these factors. 4-5 peer support groups, and groups connected to the 'our connected neighbourhoods' projects will act as fieldwork sites. We expect to conduct 1-3 data collection events with each peer support activities, and a similar number over the organisations within the our connected neighbourhoods project.
