Senedd Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee reports on inequality and the pandemic
The Seneddâ€™s Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee has published the results of its enquiry into the effects of the pandemic. The report, 'Into sharp relief: inequality and the pandemic', finds that 'the virus and the response to it is widening existing inequalities, by reducing the incomes and increasing risks disproportionately for some groups of people'.
The report covers many areas of concern to people with sight loss, such as the problems in social distancing, supermarket shopping and accessible information. It makes a total of 44 recommendations to the Welsh Government in areas such as human rights, older people, health inequalities and digital exclusion. You can read it here.
