Coronavirus and People with Learning Disabilities

The Coronavirus and People with Learning Disabilities Study

The Coronavirus and People with Learning Disabilities Study directly interviewed adults with mild/moderate learning disabilities at three time points over 12 months (Cohort 1).

There was also an online survey at the same time points with family members or paid carers of people with severe/profound learning disabilities (Cohort 2).

The three waves of data collection took place in December 2020 – February 2021; April – May 2021; and July – August 2021.

692 people with mild/moderate learning disabilities across the UK were interviewed (188 in England) and 473 (159 in England) family members/paid carers completed an online survey.

At each wave of data collection, interview and survey questions were developed in partnership with the
project’s collaborating organisations across the UK.

These were Learning Disability England and PMLD Link.

Findings for England are presented in the brief documents below.
