Free Parking Wesbite Launched for NHS Workers

I am delighted to support the BPA’s new website nhs-freeparking.co.uk which will help NHS staff and critical care workers easily find available free parking close to where they need to be. It is one less thing for these amazing healthcare workers to worry about and can save time when their focus is on saving lives.

This is a great collaboration between the British Parking Association and its members Parkopedia, YourParkingSpace and JustPark and is supported by the wider parking community.

Scrubs for Stoke

A former Royal Stoke nurse has enlisted a small army of local seamstresses to help her hand-make scrubs for hospital staff as part of a new campaign. Laura and her team are also looking to make face masks to further support staff. The team also want to produce headbands too, with buttons attached to the side so that the the mask can be tied to that, rather than coming into direct contact with a person's skin.

If you want to get involved with Scrubs For Stoke – or make a donation – you can do so via their website here.

Support Staffordshire

Community support effort in Kidsgrove and Talke to aid those who need it most. 


Thousands of vulnerable residents in Staffordshire rely on personal care in their homes, and this demand will only increase as the Covid-19 pandemic continues across the country. They need more carers to help care for them.

What’s involved?

Vulnerable residents in Staffordshire need personal care in their homes. Depending on each individual’s needs, this could include tasks such as:

  • Helping them out of bed
  • Washing or showering and dressing them
  • Brushing their teeth and hair
  • Preparing meals
  • Helping them to the toilet
