Creative Treatya Southwark based charity, is a human rights organisation that raises public awareness and understanding of human rights through creative engagement and skill building. They aim to highlight the congruent link that human rights has to community and individual wellbeing.

They have launched, 'Wellness In Covid', a report on the Covid-19 pandemic's impact on physical, mental and emotional wellness. Over the course of nine weeks they collated data from 367 of their service users and members of the public to better understand how the spread of Covid-19, lockdown restrictions, furlough and employment were impacting general wellbeing.

They sent surveys, held conversations, and ran question and answer sessions with a range of people spanning diverse communities across the UK. Some of the issues they address in Wellness In Covid are how the pandemic has impacted disabled people and people with hidden conditions. They also make recommendations to charities and community groups, government bodies and members of the public. 

Creative Treaty is , so I thought you may find the statistics and anecdotal information we gathered relevant to your work.  

In doing the report we learnt that at least 25% of our service users are considered to be living in absolute poverty, so it has also provided us with an opportunity to learn how we can better support service users needs.
