Provision of PPE for family of those shielding

People who are in the shielded category are very isolated and it is having a significant impact on mental health. A short visit with a family member could make a massive difference providing the correct precautions could be put in place such as ensuring the family member has exercised social distancing and some form of PPE could be worn.

Why the contribution is important

People who are shielded are already vulnerable and most likely have the stress of an existing condition. Add to this the anxiety of the pandemic, the complete isolation and the strictest of restrictions can lead to a massive impact on mental health. A short, but safe interaction with one family member once a week could make things that bit more bearable.
