NETimes Magazine has reported that frontline workers have been unable to return to their homes after shifts due to fear of spreading the virus. Alternative housing arrangements have, consequently, had to be found.
Bricks and Mortar is providing a “home from home” where NHS workers can be assured that they are keeping their loved ones safe.
The managing director of the company, Stuart Nickloes, has said that “We’re a community focused agency and we’re committed to supporting our NHS heroes”. He said that the offer that they are providing allows workers to “get a good night’s sleep and relax in between their critical care in a safe, comfortable and conveniently-located place to call home after their shifts”.
Bricks and Mortar are also calling for property owners from across the North East to get involved with this, as anyone with a furnished flat, house or block of flats can provide temporary homes for key-workers.
