    Overview

    This study examines the extent of support received by individuals aged 70 and over in the first four weeks of lockdown from family, neighbours or friends not living in the same household. It investigates how that support changed compared to before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. The research distinguishes between different types of households, including those defined as vulnerable.
