Care is one of the most vulnerable sectors, if not the most vulnerable. With 80% of our business focused on care it has been of the upmost importance for us to ensure supply to our care home customers during these difficult times. 50 care homes were struggling to source from their usual suppliers and asked us for our help. We stepped in and our brilliant team set them up with alternative supply partners within a week. In a time where both people and companies are struggling, we are working hard to do our best to help.
In order to support our customers, we have also sourced emergency replenishments of personal protective equipment, hygiene supplies and ready meals for the vital running of our clients’ businesses. These necessities are not ordinarily part of idc’s business model, but we are proud that we can support our customers in ways beyond our usual operational model during difficult times.
