Elizabeth Ockford Ltd is proud to have teamed up with Design Havens for Heroes, an initiative that will provide interior havens for NHS workers who have been on the front-line during the Covid-19 pandemic. We will be donating free wallpaper to several schemes working closely with one of the fantastic Interior Designers who have pledged their time.

Design Havens for Heroes was founded by Francesca Rowan-Plowden, of Rowan Plowden Design Ltd, as a way of bringing together people from across the interiors sector to help give back to the NHS workers.

You can nominate an NHS worker by tagging them in any post on the Design Havens for Heroes Instagram page. The team will match the nominee to one of the many Interior Designers who have volunteered their time and services. The Interior Designer will then work with an extensive list of companies who have donated their products to the cause to help create a beautiful haven for our hero.

“Design Havens for Heroes is a collective from all areas of interior design; designers, brands, suppliers, makers, and trades, who will pull together their talents and resources, donations of products and time, to create havens for frontline NHS workers which they can retreat too post the coronavirus crisis passes and lockdown eases.” 

– Francesca Rowan-Plowden, founder of Design Havens for Heroes

How to nominate your NHS hero

Visit the Design Haven for Heroes Instagram page and tag your NHS nominee in any of their posts or you can email nominations@designhavensforheroes.org.uk.

This initiative has created a beautiful sense of community spirit, and we are so glad to be a part of it.
