Findings from WCI Impact Survey – Women during Covid 19
NCCWN carried out a national survey in September 2020 to gauge the impact COVID-19 has had on women in Ireland with 3,369 women from across Ireland completing the survey. The data gathered provides a valuable insight into the impact of COVID-19 on the lives of many women in Ireland.
The survey summary results outline:
- the age breakdown, status and household description of the 3,369 respondents;
- information on the impact on women’s care responsibilities and relationships;
- concerns respondents have in relation to the impact of COVID-19 on their health and wellbeing;
- COVID-19 impact on staying connected and supports needed for women during and after this pandemic.
The findings of this survey will help support NCCWN’s collective voice; identifying the needs, issues and challenges now experienced by women; feed into work planning; and help NCCWN to influence new strategies being developed in response to COVID 19 both locally and nationally.
