Childcare and Wellbeing in Times of Covid-19: Developing Crisis-Resilient Care Solutions

Government-measures such as lockdown and social distancing have proved successful in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and its burden on healthcare systems. However, these policies have created childcare challenges for many families with young children.

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh are conducting this study to gather evidence of the impact of COVID-19 on families’ childcare arrangements and wellbeing.

Participation would involve an online 45-minute interview using a method that suits you e.g.  Zoom, Microsoft Teams etc.

The researchers would like to interview the parents or carers of children aged 1 – 12yrs (must be living in the household).
