Food and essentials during coronavirus

Thu 30 Apr 2020

Together with 23 other charities we’ve written to the Government and supermarkets about the challenges many of you are facing accessing food during the COVID-19 crisis.

We’re urgently calling for:

1) Supermarkets to make sure everyone with a disability, those at increased risk of Covid-19 and unpaid carers get priority access to supermarkets and home deliveries of food

2) Government to work with us to make sure no one misses out on the support they need

3) Government to provide information about the help available for people struggling to access food

4) Supermarkets to make their services more accessible for older, disabled people and their unpaid carers

We will continue to work hard to make sure you can access essential food and support during this time.

Accessing food

The continued lockdown makes it difficult for many brain injury survivors to shop for food, particularly those in high-risk groups who are unable to leave the house to shop.

Note that Amazon has recently launched its Prime Now same-day delivery service for its Prime members, offering Morrisons products in selected cities of the UK.
