Resources available for vulnerable individuals / families

Derbyshire County Council has secured funding to assist our vulnerable populations with obtaining resources to further reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus. Adherence to infection prevention control measures is lower in certain population groups, due in part to financial barriers to purchase basic supplies.

DCC holds supplies of: disposable facemasks, hand sanitiser, liquid soaps, washing up liquid, kitchen/surface sanitiser, disposable cloths, household cleaning gloves, toilet cleaner, disposable bin liners and disposable aprons, along with an advice leaflet on how to use these safely and effectively.

If your organisation works with vulnerable individuals or families then you can place regular orders to receive these products (you can choose which ones you want).

You will need to ensure that these products are included in your COSHH inventory with suitable assessments for storage, handling and use. Derbyshire County Council’s COSHH assessments for these products and manufacturers data sheets are provided to assist with this.  Please note that any flammable substances will need to be included in your fire risk assessment.

There is a simple online order system and Derbyshire County Council Logistics Hub will arrange to deliver your products to your specified destination ready for you to distribute to your clients.

You will need to register here and DCC will then send you the link to start placing your order.
