Greater Manchester Disabled Peoples Panel

GM Big Disability Survey – Covid 19 Special

The Greater Manchester (GM) Disabled People’s Panel is an independent panel made up of Disabled People’s Organisations – all of the members are disabled people and we seek to influence policy to support the rights of disabled people in GM. We also scrutinise, consult, and advise the Mayor Andy Burnham and the GM Combined Authority. This survey aims to find out what issues disabled people face during the Covid-19/Coronavirus Pandemic and will be used to inform GM services how to meet those support needs.

Please share it widely and encourage others to fill it in, and we’d be especially delighted if you can assist (safely over the phone) people without access to the internet to answer the survey

If you are filling the survey in on behalf of a disabled child or adult, please answer as them based upon their instructions/answers. 


GM Big Disability Survey about Covid 19. Easy Version

This is a survey to find out how you are feeling during this time of Covid-19. We will let Mayor Andy Burnham know what you have said. Hopefully he will be able to make things better. You do not have to give us your name.

You can fill this survey in yourself or ask someone to help you. 


If you have any further questions please email

The Deadline for completion of this survey is Monday 11th May.

Please Note: By Disabled People we mean anyone facing disabling societal barriers due to their impairments or conditions and this includes mental health, hearing or visual impairments, learning disability, neurodiverse people, and those with chronic illness or fatigue.
