Response to PPE needs

Infromation from Community Action Bradford & District:

It seems that the ongoing issues regarding access to PPE equipment nationally are starting to ease. However we need to be prudent with the supplies we can access and recognise that the best support that we can offer frontline workers is to secure what is available and provide front-line workers with PPE that enables them to sustain their community response.

Community Action B&D has been working strenuously, in partnership with BMDC and others to identify and secure what PPE supplies are available. Through this work we have accessed some PPE supplies for those non-commissioned* organisations that completed our survey; we expect that this supply point will now continue. These supplies are limited to gloves and gel only as these are deemed safe for Tier 2 services (those where you do not have direct contact/personal care with individuals) where the social distancing measures can be implemented.

We have organized the following:

For non-commissioned* organisations All PPE supplies (gloves and gel) from this point on will be ordered, sorted and delivered from one distribution point. We aim to have stocks delivered to us every Tuesday and then get them back out on a Thursday. We have access to a driver to help with deliveries. We do not want visitors at the distribution at present.

Orders can be placed using this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/PPEG

The order link will change each week so we can keep track of orders versus stocks delivered. Please use the Community Action COVID page for the latest order form www.cabad.org.uk/covid-19

Any queries please email Dave Holt dholt@thornburycentre.com
