Personal Protection Equipment for Carers

If you are providing personal care to someone outside of your household (paid or unpaid Carer) you should now consider using PPE to protect you and the person you are caring for, and Sefton Council are now able to offer a ready-made pack of PPE that will be provided free of charge. This includes protective gloves, disposable face masks, aprons and eye protection. This resource will be available until March 2022.

To order your PPE from Sefton Council, please email EmergencyPPE@sefton.gov.uk and make sure you clearly mark your email as “Carers Paid/Unpaid PPE”. Once your request has been received you will be advised of a date and time when to collect your PPE from three available collection points. 

Please let us know if you are unable to collect your PPE as soon as possible.

For those Carers without access to email, please call the Councils Contact Centre on 0345 140 0845 who will pass your details on to the Emergency PPE contact.
