Can you give us equipment to help us care for older and vulnerable residents?
We are making an urgent appeal to the business community today, Sunday, 29 March, for vital personal protective equipment (PPE) to help our social care staff look after older and vulnerable residents.
Ealing, like other boroughs across the capital, has been pressing for vital PPE equipment to be delivered as the coronavirus infection rate increases.
I am very concerned about the potential spread of infection in care homes if staff don’t get the essential disposable gloves, masks, aprons, eye masks and hand sanitiser they need.
We have been pressing the government for PPE equipment for frontline social care staff to be speeded up to match demand. We anticipate social care teams in the borough will need 100,000 pairs of gloves every week.
We urgently need FFP3 fluid resistant face masks – builders, construction workers, spray paint operatives and nail and beauty technicians may use these.
We also need disposable plastic gloves, aprons, eye protection and hand sanitiser.
If you have this equipment I urge you to donate it to help tackle the spread of this virus.
People who have stocks of this equipment are asked to deliver it to council security staff at:
- Greenford Depot Refuse and Recycling Centre, Greenford Road, Greenford, UB6 9AP
- the back door of Perceval House, Longfield Avenue, Ealing W5 2HL
We are doing everything possible to get this equipment to the front line so we can protect our older and most vulnerable residents, and our care staff, who are doing a tremendous job and on who we rely.
So far, our community has pulled together in an amazing way and I want to thank people for everything they are doing.
Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council
