What is crowdfunding?

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


SHIELD - The collaborative where innovation and creativity finds solutions to todays lack of PPE available to the NHS and all care providers.

NHS staff, inventors, innovators, and engineers, coming together to design and manufacture PPE solutions with sustainable re-use a primary consideration. Making less last longer is our objective.

From 3D printing to bespoke manufacture we are a centre for creativity. Bringing inventors, engineers, architects, doctors, students, technologists and industrial experts together to find fast track, accessible solutions. Getting vital newly manufactured equipment to the front line NHS, to medical centres, dentists, funeral directors and all healthcare providers, from vulnerable groups to ancillary staff and patients. The shortage of PPE is enormous (Herculean, according to Mr Hancock). We therefore have to create alternative and new sources while tapping into existing supply chains and purchase, when and where we can.

A United Kingdom fight against this Covid-19 virus.

Through our bespoke database NEAD ( we know nationally and geographically where equipment needs to be delivered, today. You can appeal for our help at the NEAD website.

Please show your support to this incredibly worthy campaign, donate today and help SHIELD be as effective as it can possibly be. Thank you
