PPE for Unpaid Carers

We have recieved an update from our Carers Caseworker, Lynne White, regarding PPE:

"Over the past couple of days the Department of Health have indicated unpaid carers can be provided with free personal protection equipment and the scheme for Dorset Council is now 'up and running', there is a requirement to request online or over the telephone via centralised tel no.   There are standardised packs with full guidance regarding use being provided.  Packs will be available to collect in person from Tricuro day care centres, locally this could be Shaftesbury, Sturminster Newton or Blandford.  If you are unable to collect there is scope to request delivery, which is being done by volunteers and  co-ordinated by the Dorset Volunteer Centre based in Dorchester."
