Fear, Uncertainty, and Relational Care in the Face of COVID-19, Survey of residential services in Ireland during the restrictions

John Murphy – article in the Scottish Journal of Residential Care


Resulting from the outbreak of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown, EPIC (Empowering People in Care) decided to contact all young people’s residential centres in Ireland. Often the young people that live in residential homes are the forgotten children in care, so it was important to reach out to ensure that their issues were being heard. The survey concentrated on the needs of the young people, issues affecting staff, how work practices had changed and what extra supports were needed. The responses were positive on many levels and certainly the voices of the young people and the staff were heard
