The “Health and social impacts of Covid-19 in Scotland” study aims to understand how the response to Covid-19 including lockdown measures is affecting those who may already have been isolated or excluded.

The research, commissioned by the Chief Scientist Office, is organised into four work streams for each of these isolated or excluded populations;
1. Disabilities and long-term health conditions
2. Domestic abuse and sexual violence victim-survivors
3. Imprisonment and criminal justice supervision
4. Refugees, asylum seekers and destitution-facing populations
