Aim:

We would like to gather stories from 16-25-year-old disabled people about their experiences of lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Including:

  • What has life been like for you during lockdown?
  • What does life after lockdown look like for you – has it changed how you see your future?
  • What support might you need after lockdown to achieve your future goals?

You can tell us about the good days, the bad days, what has made things easier or harder, your hopes, your worries, your dreams and ambitions for the future, about anything you would like to tell us about.

How to take part:

The are many ways in which you can tell your story, be creative and imaginative, it could be:

  • A short story (max 700 words)
  • A poem
  • A picture
  • A short video (max 2 minutes)
