Trafford residents are set to receive 4,000 sets of personal protective equipment (PPE) thanks to Trafford Housing Trust and Trafford Council.
The Trust was awarded a £40,000 grant by the Council to support infection control within the community, and this has funded kits containing reusable face masks, hand wash and sanitiser. The sets are being given to the most vulnerable people in the borough.
Fran Gudger, Head of Independent Living at Trafford Housing Trust, said: “This year has already been incredibly challenging, so as we continue with the second lockdown it is essential that the people who need it most get some protection against this awful pandemic. Winter is also when we find people become more socially isolated, especially the elderly and vulnerable. Thanks to the virus this will be particularly difficult this year, so it is vital we provide support and services wherever we can.”
Cllr Jo Harding, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Adult Services, said: “It’s really positive that we’ve been able to work in partnership with Trafford Housing Trust. Our priority is to support our residents when they need it and, thanks to the grant, more residents can stay safe and connected, and remain independent in their own homes, while the risk of infection will be reduced.”
The kits are being delivered to vulnerable groups via a number of different community groups and organisations, including British Red Cross, The Carers Centre, local schools, Discharge Lounges and
The Care Navigators.
