In England, carers are eligible to receive personal protective equipment (PPE) through the online PPE Portal. Carers can register on the Portal to order free PPE until the end of March 2023 or until the relevant guidance is withdrawn or significantly modified. In addition, some local authorities and Local Resilience Forums also distribute PPE to carers in their local areas.
