Give or fundraise in memory of someone
Donating or fundraising in someone's memory is an extremely special and meaningful way to remember them – both honouring their life and helping others significantly affected by Covid-19. We're always hugely touched and grateful to receive these donations, and you can create a page on JustGiving to get started.
Create a tribute page
You can create a beautiful Tribute Page for a loved one. We have partnered with MuchLoved to bring you these special pages which can be set up in moments.
You can use your page to:
Add photos, video, and stories
Mark anniversaries by lighting a virtual candle
Collect tribute donations
Add thoughts to a private journal
Friends and family who visit the page can also:
Send messages and photos
Add events, and much more

Gifts in wills
When you leave a gift in your Will to Covid, you help ensure that we can continue to be here for every person in the UK who has been significantly affected by Covid-19 and who needs our help.
Whether they have experienced Long Covid, lost a loved one to Covid-19, or are struggling in other ways due to the coronavirus pandemic, your legacy gift allows us to care for them for as long as it takes, whoever they are and wherever they may be. A gift in your Will helps us maintain our Covid Aid Support Community, provide 1-to-1 listening support, and produce more helpful resources.
