Scaled Insights' President, Dr Stuart Flint, will share some of the insights gleaned from our research in partnership with University of Leeds, UCL and University of Birmingham. Our goal was to understand peoples' thoughts and behaviours relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, and how this has specifically impacted people identified as ‘vulnerable’.   

National Voices have created the Our Covid Voices campaign, making it easier for people living with ongoing health needs to tell the world what life is like for them right now. Charlotte Augst (Chief Executive, National Voices) joins us to speak about their latest efforts in helping the vulnerable be heard.


The Ipsos MORI specialist ethnography team recently created a film documentary called “Blindsided” based upon a study they have been conducting for the last 6 months on changing behaviours and sentiments across 6 different countries – UK, US, China, Russia, France and Italy.



We’re joined by Eleanor Tait (Research Manager) and Lucy Neiland (Business Anthropologist) at Ipsos MORI, as they present the highlights of these findings to help us make sense of life now, what it means to live with constant change and uncertainty, and what the future might look like.


Full Event Information:


Due to the unprecedented and rapidly changing impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, it’s vital that we understand and appropriately support people who have and continue to manage physical and mental health conditions. Responses to the outbreak have led to varied actions across the world to reduce infection and spread.

For subgroups of the population who have been identified as ‘vulnerable’ due to an increased risk of severe illness, there has been varied measures and communication developed to support and prevent infection. This has led to changes in the way that people need to live and is likely to have a different and quite varied impact on people identified as ‘vulnerable’, compared to those who have not been identified as at ‘higher risk’.


We join Nexus members Scaled Insights, data specialists Ipsos MORI, and health and care service charity allegiance National Voices online to discuss the notion of vulnerability during the pandemic and the implications and long-term effects restrictions are having on those classified as ‘high risk’.

Scaled Insights

As part of an ongoing project in association with the University of Leeds, University College London (UCL), University of Birmingham and the US Military, Dr Stuart Flint (President of Scaled Insights and Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Leeds) unravels the current findings from this large-scale data sampling activity. Assessing the awareness, attitudes and actions of UK adults identified as being at risk of severe illness from COVID-19.


National Voices

With the media mostly telling the stories of people who do not live their lives with additional challenges and conditions, the voices of the many people who live with ongoing health conditions, ill-health or disability have not been the focus of much of the national discussion.

National Voices have created the Our Covid Voices campaign, making it easier for people living with ongoing health needs to tell the world what life is like for them right now. Charlotte Augst (Chief Executive, National Voices) joins us to speak about their latest efforts in helping the vulnerable be heard.


Ipsos MORI

The Ipsos MORI specialist ethnography team recently created a film documentary called “Blindsided” based upon a study they have been conducting for the last 6 months on changing behaviours and sentiments across 6 different countries – UK, US, China, Russia, France and Italy. Capturing the financial tipping point caused by the pandemic across the globe.
