Please help Cerebral Palsy Scotland build up a picture of the impact of the restrictions on the lives of people with cerebral palsy.
We recognise that the current crisis has put additional pressures on people. The survey we conducted in May was extremely helpful in painting a picture of what life was like for people with cerebral palsy during lockdown. The results of the survey were widely shared with Scottish Government and the NHS, University studies and umbrella bodies such as Neurological Alliance of Scotland and the Health and Social Care Alliance. The survey was even highlighted in an article in The Times this month. At Cerebral Palsy Scotland we used the findings to guide us on how we could support people during this time. Thank you for taking part.
Now that restrictions are easing, shielding is paused and the schools have returned, we would like to check in with you again to see how people are feeling now. This will help us build up a more robust evidence and track the impact of the restrictions for people with cerebral palsy over time.
By completing this short survey, you will help us to:
• check the services and support we are providing remain relevant and helpful,
• find out if we need to adapt our current services, or develop new ones,
• inform key agencies like the Scottish Government and the NHS about the issues faced by the CP community,
• report back to organisations that fund us about and additional pressures people are facing so we can secure the resources needed to help.
The survey will remain open until midnight on Tuesday 1 September. The more information we receive and the sooner we receive it, the more able we will be to deliver effective support to everyone that needs it.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the survey. We really appreciate your help.
