From 16th March 2020, GDA suspended all planned programmes due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The staff team switched to home working, and immediately began reaching out to our 5000+ disabled members to listen and offer support, through phone calls, postal mails outs and online. We were extremely lucky that our funders allowed us to redirect resources and employ a fantastic team of temporary workers to help us make over 8000 phone calls, send out 20,000 mail shots, and collect 2,100 in-depth responses to our COVID-resilience survey.
Supercharged: A human catastrophe is the culmination of that work – and outlines our members’ concerns before, during and after lockdown.
