What are we doing?
There are an array of heroes doing great things to support the national COVID-19 response and our ambition is to map all their amazing efforts, so nobody is left out.
So please, support our survey data collection, if you can.
Firstly, we are mapping the background to COVID-19, in other words, providing up-to-date maps of the number of cases and fatalities for the whole of the UK, at the local level, putting all this data in one place on this website.
Against this background, we have been mapping the frontline responders at hospitals and paramedic units and those community responders who support not only the medical teams, but those people at home, especially the elderly and disabled, or single parents, who are now vulnerable. These community responders are a wonderfully diverse range of heroes including but not limited to; educational establishments, religious organisations, businesses, manufacturing, sport, transport, food bank charities and more.
One example are the secondary schools making personal protective equipment for local hospitals, which you will find in the map below.
