COVID-19 Support & Resources

Support for members and people living with obesity during the COVID-19 outbreak

We know that ASO members and the people living with obesity who they support are facing challenging, distressing and unprecedented times. As a community, we want to share information, support and ideas to help minimise the negative impacts of this pandemic and ensure that we are all able to care for each other. If you have anything to add to this list, please get in touch with the ASO Office.
