In line with our values as an open, collaborative charity, we share our monthly reviews and quarterly reports with trustees, volunteers and the public. This means we can show our progress and hear your feedback on how to better support those affected by Covid-19 across the UK.

We saw tremendous growth in January following a festive season dominated by Omicron. Now, thanks to the successful roll-out of booster vaccines, the landscape of Covid-19 in the UK is changing again.

We will continue to build on the growth experienced in January, both in our Support Community and our Partnerships with national organisations, to ensure we reach those most in need as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Highlights this month include:

  • NHS Partnership: Long Covid Taskforce - We began working with NHS England and NHS Improvement to help strengthen their support for people with Long Covid.

  • New Charity Ambassador: Jasmine Hayer - We welcomed Jasmine, a Long Covid advocate, writer and blogger onboard and look forward to working with her in 2022.

  • Support Community: Membership Growth - Our Covid-19 Support Community doubled with more people engaging on the platform than ever. Click here to join for free.

  • Conversations With Experts - Cruse Bereavement Support, the UK's leading bereavement charity, joined us for a live Q&A, and Emily Lockwood, a specialist physiotherapist, helped to produce a new Course for our Community platform.

Thanks to all who have supported us this month. February is already showing great promise in our ongoing efforts to raise awareness to the impact of Covid-19 on the lives of people across the UK. Please click here if you would like to get involved!
