Asda to offer 3,500 care homes priority slots for online delivery

Asda has offered thousands of small care homes priority access to online delivery slots for the next six months. It has also donated 250,000 medical grade face masks to the homes to help protect care workers and residents.

The offer of support has been made in a letter to the care homes by Asda president and chief executive Roger Burnley.

Care homes have been invited to register for a ‘priority pass’ with the supermarket that will give them early visibility of online slots and the ability to secure a delivery.

In his email explaining the move to customers, Burnley said: “The impact of covid on our care system has been the subject of numerous news reports in recent days, and the challenges facing our nation’s care homes and the staff who are working so hard to protect some of our most vulnerable people have been heart-breaking to see.

“Giving priority access to these amazing care homes is, I believe, the right thing for us to do – and I am proud, that having built the capacity of our online delivery service in recent weeks from 450,000 slots to 700,000 weekly slots, we are able to do this for our care homes.”

The offer of support has been sent to the 3,500 small care homes that already have their details registered with Asda.
