The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharp focus the inequalities affecting children and families in South Lanarkshire communities, and how these have been heightened by the crisis. The aim of this research was to examine service responses to the COVID-19 virus pandemic and the experiences of families, children and young people. This briefing focusses on learning in relation to the impact of COVID-19 on inequalities and family wellbeing during and after the first lockdown.

An overview of the research methodology and approach used in this research is presented as an Appendix at the end of this briefing. 

This briefing paper forms one of a suite of resources published from the CNS COVID-19 research programme. The full research report, other thematic briefing papers and short insight papers are available on the CNS website.
