Trustees wanted to help sufferers of Long COVID

About COVID Research

60,000 people in the UK have been diagnosed with Long-COVID. This condition makes everyday activities, such as washing or dressing, impossible.

COVID Research is there for Long COVID sufferers, in the short, medium and long term. We fund and publish research into the nature, causes, diagnosis, treatment, possible cures and the possible prevention of Long COVID. We campaign for Long COVID to be recognised as a disability and coordinate with mental health services.
