In 2020, NCCWN carried out a survey asking the women of Ireland to let them know how their lives have been impacted by COVID-19. The findings of the survey have shown that the COVID19 Pandemic has had a huge impact on women in many areas of their lives including: Isolation & Loneliness, Strain on Mental Health and Wellbeing, Medical Issues, Disconnected from support systems, Lack of access to adequate Internet services and Fear & Concern.
NCCWN recognises that consulting with women through a survey format is a useful tool for gathering information that will help to target supports for women. NCCWN will continue to carry out research on issues affecting women’s lives. The findings of this survey will help support NCCWN’s collective voice; identifying the needs, issues and challenges now experienced by women; feed into work planning; and help NCCWN to influence new strategies being developed in response to COVID 19 both locally and nationally. NCCWN will continue to support women throughout and beyond this pandemic.
In response to the results they have designed an information poster which includes the names and numbers of organisations that might be useful for women in Dublin to have right now.
Any local organisations who would like a poster for their premises are welcome to contact NCCWN on 085 8513040 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. NCCWN has a local branch based in Rowlagh, Clondalkin and for more information see https://nccwn.org/project/nccwn-rowlagh.
