The Long COVID Support Group is an initiative of the Health Issues Centre (HIC), Victoria's peak consumer health body. As such, the Group sits within the governance and oversight of HIC but with its own advisory body (which must consist of at least 50% of people who have or have had Long COVID). Although the Group originates in Victoria, we recognise that Long COVID does not recognise state boundaries and therefore the community is open to all those who wish to participate and commit to abiding by our Community Guidelines.
The Group has been established for the principal purpose of creating a mutually supportive community for people living with Long COVID and their carers, families and supporters. It also seeks to provide authoritative information on latest medical treatments, research findings and available support services for people with Long COVID.
The establishment and ongoing management of the Group has been made possible by grants from the Victorian Government Department of Health and the Melbourne Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation. We acknowledge and appreciate their support.
