Documenting COVID-19 in Tyne & Wear

Be part of our region’s memory – Tyne & Wear Archives need your help

Will you become part of our collective memory?

Just like other archives and museums across the world, Tyne & Wear Archives are keen to document the experiences of ordinary people in Tyneside and Wearside during the Covid-19 pandemic.

If you live or work in Tyne and Wear, we would love to hear from you. That’s the local authority areas of Gateshead, Newcastle, North and South Tyneside, and Sunderland.

It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do – we’d like to hear from people of any age, working, unemployed, retired or key workers and from all communities in our area. If you’ve got something to contribute, we’re interested.

In years to come our records will be crucial to the future understanding and impact of the current health crisis people are going though. We need your help to document the experience of ordinary people during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We'll ask you a series of questions about how your life has changed. You don't have to answer all of the questions if you don't want to.
