Hermes extends partnership with WDP

We are delighted to announce that our partnership with Hermes, one of the UK’s largest parcel delivery companies, has been extended until the end of September. This partnership ensures that our most vulnerable Capital Card users continue to get access to essential items during the coronavirus pandemic through a home delivery service.


Service users place orders for essential items that they would usually ‘buy’ in their local WDP service’s Pop-Up Shops, such as toiletries and non-perishable items. Hermes then delivers these orders to the service user’s door within one week, as part of the Capital Card ‘Shop on Wheels’ initiative.

Below is some of the fantastic feedback we’ve received from service users who have benefited from these generous Hermes deliveries:

  • “A huge thank you for a lovely parcel full of goodies, it has made my day.”
  • “It is very important for me to know that there is somebody out there thinking about me as I have been shielding since March 2020. Thank you for the lovely parcels.”
  • “I love receiving parcels full of goodies, the variety of items is wonderful and also the surprises.”
  • “Thank you ever so much for helping both myself and my child to get through those difficult times.”

A huge thank you to Hermes for all the support that they have given our services users during this challenging time.
