We have not undertaken any such impact assessments to date.

We have worked alongside the National Health Service and other organisations to provide a package of emotional, psychological and practical resources for the social care workforce. We are engaging with social care stakeholders to understand the impact of COVID-19 on the mental health of staff and that the right support is available.
