BuDS wants to make sure that disabled people get reliable and accurate information during the coronavirus pandemic. Things are changing very quickly, with the Government bringing in new guidance and rules every week. Driving all these changes is research and statistics from many universities, research centres and government agencies like Public Health England and the Office for National Statistics.
Not many people have the skills to look at the research and statistics and interpret it professionally. However, BuDS is fortunate to have several professional volunteers who are able to do this. We have therefore set up a new Insight project to publish regular reports giving our independent assessment of the latest statistics and scientific reports, with comments on the Government’s use of this data.
