A chance to help people and expand your business


As the Covid-19 emergency continues, many health and care providers in your area are struggling to find supplies of life-saving equipment and services. This is a chance for you to expand into a new market and at the same time help your community. Do you supply food, medical equipment and aids, cleaning and domestic products, PPE or stationery? Or could you adapt your processes to do so? Our partnership can put you in touch with providers who need fast, reliable and quality supplies on their doorstep now and into the future. "Through this project we can connect the local supply chain to meet the needs ofthe Shropshire care sector” Nicky Jacques, Chief Officer, Shropshire Partners in Care (SPiC).

How it works?


Local businesses who can supply the Adult Social Care sector can promote their business by completing this simple online questionnaire. Products and services in demand include PPE, medical equipment and aids, cleaning products, food and staffing. Social Care services providers trying to source products and services are informed of local business suppliers using Astrosat’s geospatial visualisation tool (ORBIS) to get information about the location and types of supply that is available to them.

The Covid-19 crisis has exposed weaknesses in the health and social care supply chain.
