Covid Memorial Day
Support our calls for a Covid Memorial Day to be held on March 23rd 2022, and every year thereafter. The UK needs a permanent commemoration of the lives lost and the lives changed as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic in the UK.
We must remember the lives lost and lives changed with dignity, and commemorate the efforts of our frontline and key workers with pride.
Support the campaign
We are calling for:
Recognition of each anniversary of the first UK lockdown, starting on 23 March 2022, as Covid Memorial Day
A minute’s silence to be held at noon in schools, workplaces, and all public venues across the country
Plans for memorialisation to be led by local communities, council authorities and devolved nations, including a new Covid Memorial Monument on Whitehall, where wreaths can be laid
