Adult Secure Service User, Family and Carer Feedback Survey during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

The report summarises all of the findings from the survey we undertook from April to June 2020 about the experiences of people in secure services during the pandemic.

We Live In Hope

“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it with all of our baggage. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world.”

Moving on in a Pandemic

I have been in services for 9 years in various hospitals around the country and it has been very challenging at times for me and my family. I didn’t think until now, that the challenges we face as a family would test us any further, until Covid-19 came. It came and shook everyone up as a nation, for me I didn’t expect to go through anymore heartache but the challenges that coincided with the virus were unexpected for everyone, especially me.

Pudding & Custard

I don’t know about you, but I love pudding and custard! When I was in hospital, we had it nearly every day and sticky toffee pudding and custard was my favourite!
