Our support for the NHS stretches back decades. And now we've ramped it up further to help our NHS heroes' COVID-19 response

How we're supporting the NHS

Read our press release about extended support for the NHS COVID-19 response

Supporting our food suppliers

Throughout the Covid-19 crisis, our food suppliers have supported us in delivering for our customers, so we’re supporting them to continue delivering the high standards our customers expect from M&S. 

Since the start of the crisis, we have been in constant communication with all of our suppliers and have provided best practice guidelines to help them to make necessary adjustments to their sites—from implementing increased hygiene measures to installing screens to maintain distance. We acted quickly to support our suppliers to manage absence and maintain social distancing by simplifying production lines and focusing on essential M&S products where needed. 

We’ve been doing all we can to support our suppliers throughout these unprecedented times, from extending our funding platform for our smaller food suppliers to access immediate payments to backing our 10,000 British farmers—who have faced enormous challenges—through our customer marketing channels. We are continuing to work with each individual supplier, alongside conducting virtual site audits and ethical checks, to make sure our standards are always upheld and workers in our supply chain keep well.


Showing off our support for the NHS

On 23 April 2020, we launched our range of All in this Together t-shirts, in aid of NHS Charities Together

Designed in-house, the t-shirts captured the sentiment of the nation, and with the help of some famous faces, quickly became our fastest-ever selling tees, with one being bought online every second at one point. After two weeks, over 30,000 t-shirts have been shipped.

Supporting our most vulnerable customers

We’re doing everything we can to prioritise our colleague’s health and wellbeing, as well as support our business, our customers, and our wider communities. First of all we've created special shopping hours for vulnerable and older customers, NHS and emergency services, and health and social care workers.
