We are a group of people of disparate backgrounds who have got together and pooled our skills and resources in order to make an impact on reducing  the spread of coronavirus specifically for the  working public.To this end we have researched, developed, designed and finally manufactured ASN Masks – Actively Supporting NHS Charities.

We are based in the Cotswolds, Merseyside, Cheshire and London.

We supply high quality, reusable, clothed barrier face masks and snoods, at an affordable price to all workers.

We all realised that non-surgical face masks was going to be crucial for the working public to wear, for example, on public transport and in  any unavoidable environments where social distancing was going to be a problem.


The CRV19 Science informs us that, a certain proportion of the population contract the virus show NO symptoms, BUT act as ‘carriers’ shedding  the virus to unsuspecting bystanders who then develop the viral infection.

Scientific evidence from the WHO, and now also from the UK Government, recommends the use of ‘barrier masking’, to reduce contracting such infections, especially in crowded places.

To this end we have sourced the highest quality barrier materials for our masks and snoods. So that BOTH the unsuspecting ‘carrier’ is prevented from spreading the virus to an unsuspecting bystander who is in turn protected by wearing a mask or snood.
