Crawley research project

Citizens Advice are carrying out an important research amongst residents in Crawley, to gather insight into why people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds may have been disproportionately affected by Coronavirus.

They are looking for people from BAME backgrounds to provide information and share their experiences during the Coronavirus crisis and are asking for help to reach as many people as possible.

The information will be gathered through a survey, interviews and focus groups to make recommendations to the NHS and others, so communities recover and move forward from Covid-19 safely.

The survey:
The survey takes around 20 minutes to complete and can be answered anonymously.  It will be open until Tuesday 4th August 2020.

The survey is divided into 6 sections which explore relationships with NHS services, risk of contracting Coronavirus, working during the Coronavirus pandemic, accessing information and concerns and a section about the respondent.

The survey can be completed online here or downloaded as a paper document.

One-to-one meetings and focus groups in July and August:
They are also looking for people to take part in confidential one-to-one interviews and focus groups. Personal details from interviews will not be shared.
