FOR BLUE-LIGHT WORKERS ONLY (POLICE/FIRE/AMBULANCE/NURSES/DOCTORS)
Dear Frontline COVID 19 response worker,
We understand how important your contribution is to keeping the nation as safe as possible in these difficult times.
Like us, your employers will be planning how best to provide the services the country needs in the coming weeks. Many blue light services are starting to review shift and rota patterns to look at how our national response can step up to meet anticipated greater need. Equally, many non-frontline employees are now being furloughed and have additional time at home to support in the provision of child care.
We would be very grateful if you could let us know of your anticipated emergency child care needs from our setting for the coming week, including any working pattern/hours changes. We are still awaiting government guidance for educational settings, and operate within government rules. However having this information in advance will help us to plan as far as we can to provide emergency childcare to support you in your front line response role.
