26 Shields

Nearly one year on from our first experience of lockdown, Alastair Creamer and Becca Magnus are launching a project to share the stories of those who have been shielding.

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve heard heroics and tragedies, but some of the most important stories remain untold. For 26 Shields, we’re inviting people who are shielding to share their stories. It’s a place for hard truths, quiet courage, small joys and positive, powerful reflection on what it means to live.

We want to give shielders back their voice. We’ll share their stories from across five key moments in the pandemic, in written and audio form on the 26 website and social media.
