Covid Aid charity looks to reach and support more people with Long Covid after receiving much-needed funding from The Scottish Government.
With a consistent demand for support, guidance and advice on Long Covid and other Covid-19-related issues, with this funding, Covid Aid looks to launch new services to further their support.
This includes the launch of a Scotland group on the support community, a self-management programme in partnership with LGOWIT for Long Covid, the launch of a mobile phone app for the support community and a Long Covid awareness campaign. Further information on this can be found on our webpage here.

Covid Aid Executive Director, Joyce Gray said:
This funding comes at an important time for the charity, as we approach almost three years since the beginning of the pandemic, and many continue to struggle with Covid-19-related issues.
