‘Life during Covid – a different perspective’: Guest vlog by Simone Aspis

There has been a lot of research about the difficulties people have faced through the Covid pandemic.

Most of us have experienced loneliness and anxiety over the past year.

 

But there has been much less research and information about what life has been like for people with learning disabilities living in ATU’s and other institutions.

 

 

 

Simone Aspis, Director at Changing Perspectives talks about the main struggles faced by people who have been cut off from their family and friends for so long.

 

This includes isolation, digital exclusion and difficulties getting the right care and support.
