Faces of the Pandemic
A national project in which one of our service users will feature. She is on the website link below (scroll to bottom right) holding her ipad she has from us. In her interview she talks about how lockdown has been worse that WW2 (she was an evacuee) and how AUKW has helped her. There will be a coffee table book published next year in which her full interview will be published.
