  • domestic violence refuges
  • rough sleeping services
  • social and primary care providers on the PPE portal in clinical need for example, if theres an increase in local COVID-19 cases or temporary difficulties accessing other distribution channels

The Department for Education is working with local authorities and LRFs to determine the demand for education and childcare settings.
