The Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry is investigating the devolved strategic response to the pandemic in Scotland between 10 January 2020 and 31 December 2022. The Inquiry will establish the facts, identify the lessons that need to be learned, and make recommendations to Scottish Ministers.
Let’s Be Heard has been established to encourage people across Scotland to engage with the Inquiry by sharing their experiences of the pandemic. To be better prepared for the future, it is important they hear directly from people about what happened to them and understand the lessons they believe should be learned.
The information gathered through Let’s Be Heard will help guide the Inquiry’s investigations and inform its reports and recommendations. They need to reach as many people as possible across Scotland, which will help them identify any unequal impacts of the pandemic. This national phase of Let’s Be Heard is open until 20 December 2023.
What were your experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic? What were the impacts of these experiences on you or the people you know? What lessons do you think should be learned from your experiences?
