Covid Confidence Evaluation Report
We are happy to share an evaluation of the impact of Covid Confidence, which has been compiled by Dr Janet Harris (School of Health and Related Research), Dr Paulina Ramirez (Birmingham Business School) and Frances Arnold (Darnall Well Being). Covid Confidence sessions were coordinated in different areas of Sheffield by Sheffield Community Contact Tracers during the pandemic. Numerous sessions were run in areas including Darnall, Sharrow and Burngreave.
The report describes why we decided to coordinate online sessions of Covid Confidence in Sheffield when the pandemic began, what we hoped to achieve through the activities, and what actually happened. It also discusses what needs to happen next, now that there is a general desire to get back to ‘normal’.
