VRA 2021 Special Recognition Award and the launch of “Long Covid Work”

As a group of people with Long Covid, who have been advocating for better work, employment and social security support, Long Covid Work (Long Covid Support Employment Group) are delighted to have been awarded a Special Recognition Award at the 2021 Vocational Rehabilitation Association awards.

As Long Covid Support becomes a charity, Long Covid Work becomes a consultancy.

From individuals who found each other online during a global pandemic, to advocates fighting for improved support at work, to award winners (despite working entirely from our sofas – and sometimes in a supine position!).

The 7th December 2021 now also sees us launch this website which celebrates the work the group has acheived together, provides guidance for employees experiencing Long Covid, and also promotes “Long Covid Work” as a consultancy of associates offering commercial vocational rehabilitation, education and training based on our expertise both by lived experience and professional background.

If you are an individual needing supporting with staying in, returning to or leaving work well please see our resources page and guide for employees. For employers, healthcare professionals or trade union representatives if you would like to work with us please contact us to discuss your needs.
