Key Worker Support

Please note, this page is under construction and will be populated with more information over the coming weeks.

To Key Workers:

We want this to be a practical resource for Key Workers and we need your help to make sure that we have the right information available. Please tell us what you need to know, and we will do our best to provide it.

To businesses who want to help support our Key Workers:

If you want to offer services to our key workers, such as accommodation, access to food or services, please let us know so we can publicise it on your behalf.

Would your care home benefit from handmade face masks?

We are proud to be working with Skye MacKenzie from IMAGINE (Lossie Wynd, Elgin) providing handmade facemasks for our fantastic Care Workers in Moray.

These masks are not PPE however, we understand that when care workers leave their place of work at the end of a shift, being outside and meeting others runs a risk, the aim is that these masks help to offer a level of protection during those times.

We have already been able to provide masks for more than 300 Care Workers in our area, but we are keen to do as much as we can for Moray and are able to supply an additional 150 Care Workers with a set of 2 masks.  If you run a care home and these homemade masks could help, please let us know as quickly as possible.  You would need to tell us how many staff members you would like supplied. Please email [email protected]

There is a limited number of masks available so the masks will be assigned on a first come first served basis.
