MadCovid is a shared space for survivor / service user led projects and initiatives that started during the COVID19 pandemic. Here we tell you a bit about who we are….

If you have a project that could be hosted at MadCovid.com please get in touch!

G is a Mad armchair activist in his PJs helping out with MadCovid wherever he can!


Matt spends the whole week thinking up good questions for MadCovid’s weekly Quarantine Quiztacular. Any spare few minutes he manages to find are spent on him submitting his PhD in Medieval Literature. He also lives with Bipolar 2 disorder as well as some long term physical disabilities, and is always happy to talk about the harm that lazy thinking and unhelpful attitudes can have towards those living with disability. He’s also pretty happy to talk about horror films, video games, D&D and poetry, so maybe don’t get him started on any of those.
