As schools re-open and Covid-19 cases rise, challenges for parents & carers continue. PiPA wants to hear from you. Take their short survey to tell them how the situation is affecting your work and family life.

As part of the survey they are investigating the impact of Covid-19 on people with parenting and caring responsibilities who face additional barriers in their careers due to race, gender, disability and/or socio-economic status.

This intersectional approach enables them to understand the deeper complexities and challenges faced by many parents and carers in the performing arts.
