Holding answer received on 15 July 2020

Since the Secretary of State’s announcement around 15,000 badges have been distributed at no cost to social care providers or members of the workforce.

To increase supply, additional badges of recognition have been procured by government and we expect to be able to start distribution of these badges shortly. Details of how they will be distributed to people working in social care will be available in due course.
