Writer, coach and OD consultant Lesley Macniven is passionate about equality. When Covid-19 interrupted diversity, inclusion and change projects in March 2020, Lesley became a moderator, campaigner then spokesperson for patient-led Long Covid Support. She led offshoot campaigns in 2020 and 2021 and co-founded specialist groups Long Covid Scotland, Long Covid Work and Equality Starts at Home. This grassroots campaigning around rehab, research and recognition has been vital, but the full ongoing impacts of ‘Long Covid’ are still poorly understood.
