In July 2020, the Joint Committee on Human Rights starting investigating the Government’s response to Coronavirus. They asked people and groups to send them information on human rights during Coronavirus.

So, we at BIHR spent lots of time listening to people’s real-life experiences of human rights during Coronavirus so we could share them with the Committee. We spoke to the three groups we work with:

  1. People accessing (or trying to access) health and care services;
  2. Staff working in health and care during Coronavirus; and
  3. Advocates and community groups who support people accessing services.

We wrote what people told us into reports, one report for each group. You can read the long reports by clicking this link, or read the easy read reports by clicking the images below.
