As a support worker I am expected to work in the community going from house to house with only basic PPE. We are only being given face masks if a client has symptoms of Covid 19. We could potentially be passing Covid 19 from one house to another, we then go home to our families and go out to supermarkets so potentially spreading this further. We should have the protection needed to protect our clients and ourselves and families. The lockdown Boris Johnson has put in place on the country is rather quite pointless for us working in the community as we go from house to house delivering care with no protection. It is time for us as Community workers to stand up and be counted and ensure that we are heard and get the protection we so rightfully deserve to have. We are trying to keep people out of hospital and preventing the spread of this virus if we have the correct PPE we could do this more efficiently, which also assists freeing up hospital beds preventing the NHS becoming overwhelmed with patients. Please get behind this petition and sign for all Community workers.
