Our work is focused on supporting social carers with opportunities for employment, education, access to PPE and mental health support.

At all times, our focus is on achievable outcomes and sustainable impact.

Our donations of essential PPE give
UK hospices a vital lifeline

Care workers everywhere have been to extraordinary lengths to support the most vulnerable members of society without always having access to adequate protective equipment to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As part of our ongoing work in the UK, Kit4Carers has delivered masks, aprons and gloves to care organisations including Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, Blue Crystal Care Agency, and the North London, Harlington, and Michael Sobell Hospices.

This has helped keep carers and patients safe and saved the organisations tens of thousands of pounds at a time when the price of PPE increased sharply due to the global shortage.

North London Hospice is a registered charity that has been caring for local people since 1984. We help those with a potentially life-limiting illness who have specialist needs.

We welcome people from all faiths and communities within the boroughs of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey. We provide physical, emotional and spiritual care to patients and families, friends and carers.

We treat everyone as an individual. Our multi-professional team consists of specially trained doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, social workers, counsellors and chaplains. All of us are committed to ensuring that patients receive our full support, enabling them to choose how they receive our care. Our goal is to try and help patients live life to the full despite their illness.

Latha Kathirkamathamby leads an excellent team at Blue Crystal Care Agency, where the emphasis is on choosing kind and compassionate caregivers for their clients and looking after them as if they were family members. Latha has had some difficulty obtaining PPE and with prices going up threefold she was delighted to receive FREE PPE from Kit4Carers. Latha has won many plaudits for her work and appeared in the 2019 Parliamentary Review representing Best Practice in the care sector, in recognition of their quality service.

Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice provides clinical, practical and emotional support to babies, children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families living in North and Central London and Hertsmere. Every child receives a bespoke package of support including specialist care and therapies as well as access to a busy and fun-filled family activities programme. Emma Pleass was thrilled to receive sets of face masks, aprons and pairs of gloves which were donated by Kit4Carers.
