Healthcare workers: We stand with you
We are a charity. Our platform connects frontline health care workers who need PPE with companies and communities that can supply or donate PPE.
As we enter the second wave, we need to know the people who are there to keep us safe, are kept safe. Please help us to spread the word. Follow us or share this page to make sure our message and platform reaches as many frontline workers as possible.
How it works
A simple realtime way to connect need and supply.
our work so far
With the help of over 40 volunteers we launched the first national, real-time, open data map of PPE needs and supply. Between March and July we achieved:
1,500+ PPE shortages reported
12,000+ pieces of PPE delivered
120 suppliers have signed up
40% of hospitals have had needs met
But with winter approaching, we cannot let our guard down; we must be protected and prepared.
We need to protect our medical, dental and nursing staff as they put themselves in harms way for us. Ready availability of appropriate personal protection equipment is the key to keeping them safe. An open data platform that shows front-line needs in real time can help us do just that.
