About this web page
The UK Covid-19 Inquiry is the group that is looking at how the UK dealt with Covid-19.
Every Story Matters is our listening project. We listen to people say what the Covid-19 pandemic was like for them.
We would like to know what the Covid-19 pandemic was like for you. The information on this web page will tell you how you can do this.

How can you tell us what Covid-19 was like for you?
You can tell us what the Covid-19 pandemic was like for you by filling in an online form.
You do not have to fill in the form all in one go. You can fill some in, save what you have done, and finish it later.
You can tell us as much or as little as you would like about what Covid-19 was like for you.

UK Covid-19 Inquiry
That’s all you need to put on the envelope. You do not need a stamp.
Why should you tell us what Covid-19 was like for you?
By telling us what the Covid-19 pandemic was like for you, you are helping us understand what could be done better in the future.
This will mean the UK is more ready for an emergency in the future.
Do we really want to hear from you?
Yes, we really want to know what the Covid-19 pandemic was like for you.
You do not need to have had Covid-19 or had something very upsetting happen to you.
Every story will help us understand what the Covid-19 pandemic was like in the UK.
We want to hear from lots of different people.
What happens after you have sent the form?
We will use all of the forms that people send us.
We will then use what people have said to write a report.
The report will be about the most common things that happened during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We are only collecting information about what happened to people, not who the people are.
So no personal information about you will be in the report.
