Sikh Helpline: Request For FREE PPE
Applications for PPE can be made using the Form below. This service allows individuals to apply for free PPE in the event that they are unable to source/afford PPE to meet their needs.
The Sikh Help Line supported by its “mile for PPE” campaign has now sourced PPE and has received a supply which can be requested for individuals across our communities. For example, Care workers and people delivering care can request PPE from us by filling in our online form
For qualifying applications, the cost of PPE is free of charge.
However, please note:
Our PPE stock could deplete quickly due to the number of requests, were working very hard with the money raised by our campaign to keep supplies flowing. Therefore, please make sure your order is for a maximum of 1 month supply. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee requests will be met and we may need to issue you with a lesser amount to make sure we can manage our stock appropriately.
To request PPE from us you need to show that you have tried all the other options to source PPE, that your supply chain (or alternative) has been unable to supply you with appropriate PPE and that PPE is required to deliver care in line with latest government guidelines.
In cases where affordability due to work circumstances or business closures are in question please state this on the form.
If you are able to demonstrate all avenues have been explored, you should complete the on-line application form.
As our stocks are limited we cannot guarantee being able to meet your request, and we may need to prioritise requests according to those carrying the highest risk. Please make sure the PPE is used in accordance with available guidance.
Once submitted, we will assess your eligibility to receive PPE via this scheme and notify you whether you have been successful.
Subject to your agreement, we will then arrange delivery. This normally takes place within 7 working days of submitting the request.
This PPE has been provided as part of a Sikh Helpline fundraising initiative. All PPE must be used in accordance with the correct guidance and appropriate safety measures. The Sikh Helpline accepts no liability and we would ask all users of this PPE to check appropriately before usage.
