Callout for spare personal protective equipment

Calling tattoo parlours, nail and beauty salons and manufacturers who use gloves/aprons/masks! Do you have any personal protective equipment (PPE) you are not using?

Sandwell Council needs your support during the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

The council is looking for donations of fluid-repellent face masks and single-use disposable gloves and aprons.

Our borough is doing everything it can to keep our residents and care teams safe during the coronavirus pandemic. But equipment is needed to protect council staff while they go about their jobs caring for people, helping the vulnerable and delivering supplies to people most in need.

Some council services also need paper overalls and hand sanitiser for people who are doing deliveries and working on various sites throughout the day.
