Do you want to make, donate or request face coverings?
Then you're in the right place.
The evidence suggests that if we all wear face coverings, we can protect one another. The WHO, the CDC and Public Health England all advise that they are worn in public, in areas with high Covid-19 infection rates. In the UK face coverings are now compulsory on public transport and in shops.
So on this site you will find information about how to make face coverings and how to donate them.
If you are a health or social care provider, a registered charity or an informal group serving or representing vulnerable people, you can request face coverings made by our volunteer sewists.
- 3 layers of tightly woven fabric including at least one non-woven layer - for example non-woven polypropylene (NWPP)
- Fabric must be breathable
- Face coverings should fit close and cover nose and chin
For full information on how to make them, see Design.
For ideas on where and how to distribute them (including instructions on how to wear and take care of the face coverings), see Donate.
