Following Jack Dromey’s letter on 22nd April, Asda’s CEO Roger Burnley has committed to providing additional support for care homes during the pandemic.

The commitment includes offering thousands of small care homes priority access to online delivery slots for the next six months, as well as a donation of 250,000 medical grade face masks to help protect workers and residents.

Jack Dromey MP said:

“On 22nd April, I wrote to the CEO’s of the 6 largest supermarkets in the UK asking them to make special arrangements to support care homes through the Coronavirus crisis. This was after I conducted a survey of all Erdington’s care homes, where many told me they were unable to purchase enough food to feed their residents due to item restrictions and a lack of online deliveries.

“I’m pleased that ASDA UK have listened and have responded by offering thousands of small care homes priority access to online delivery slots for the next six months, as well as a donation of 250,000 medical grade face masks to help protect workers and residents.

“I know that our local care homes will join me in welcoming this move and hopefully we will now see care homes being able to access the shopping they need to properly look after their residents.”
