Resources during Coronavirus Pandemic

Since March 2020, our lives have been ruled by the Coronavirus Pandemic. Choices and decisions about how we live, work and play have been governed by a new set of rules. To support advocates through this period we will offer additional help and guidance about how best to deliver Independent Advocacy to ensure the role we play in protecting people's human rights continues.

This MYTHBUSTER guide was co-produced with VoiceAbility, Kate Mercer and NDTi - it debunks the myths and misunderstandings that may be circulating during the Coronavirus crisis.  (April 2020)
