dc.description.abstractThis report presents findings from research on the effects of Covid-19 on people with vision impairment, based on a survey of 937 respondents. The survey contained closed questions and open free text questions, both of which are analysed in this report. The survey specifically addressed constraints to everyday life activities (work, education, leisure, recreation, etc.), the extent to which these were negotiated and how this impacted wellbeing during Covid-19. Additionally, it considered levels of support from essential services and engagement with social distancing measures. The research was undertaken in collaboration with Guide Dogs. Survey respondents include Guide Dogs service users and affiliates of Guide Dogs and Visionary who have vision impairment or care for someone who does.en_UK
