If you believe you are eligible for PPE based on the advice provided on the previous pages and you cannot access it through your normal routes, please contact your local carers’ centre and they will advise you on how to access supplies locally.

If your local carers’ centre is unavailable, you can call the Social Care PPE Support Centre on 0300 303 3020 and they can provide you with information.
