Find out how our members have had to change the way they work when rising to the challenge of responding to the COVID-19 crisis.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) can make anyone seriously ill. But some people are at a higher risk and need to take extra steps to avoid becoming unwell. The public bodies that make up our National Health Service are leading the fight against the virus in the UK, but we have all played a role in the response.

ALLIANCE members have been at the forefront of measures to mitigate the impact of COVID-19. We would like to highlight the great work of our members and their continued commitment to supporting people and communities that rely on them in their response to COVID-19.

Many of our members have been instrumental in raising awareness across Scotland to ensure people of all ages living with long term conditions or disabilities and in unpaid caring roles have a strong voice and access to accurate healthcare information and advice. Many of our members have also been quick to move digitally by successfully embracing delivery of services and events through technology whilst others have been key in ensuring people with lived experience are at the heart of the UK and Scottish Government’s policy-making through policy and advocacy.

These are just some of the actions our members are undertaking to help respond to COVID-19. Visit the webpage to find out more.
