I’m a single mother of a four year old and due to the lockdown situation I have no means of childcare. And I don’t qualify for child care I’m classed as key worker but I cant do anything about not having anyone to look after him I’m his only dependant he also has asthma which his a worry as well .nit my manager made me feel like this was my fault and asked me personal questions too I was made to feel totally alone and worthless as she reminded me of the fact I had no one. I was so upset close to breakdown and felt bad if I was being discriminated against for being a single mother just wondering if anyone has faced this and looking for some advice thanks
Hi Janet sorry to hear of your difficulties. Is your little one @nursery or school?
If you are a key worker children should still be attending. I know what you are saying but don’t try to analyse everything that comes out of your managers mouth.
.My boss rang me straight away and asked me if I had my childcare sorted. She didn’t contact anyone else and I said yes! Luckily everything fell into place and my child is still at school. I am working!!!
If you work you qualify for childcare. I would suggest you get onto council website and see if you can find sympathic Childminder then ring HMRC. Our child minder is still working. Good luck x
I hit E mail S saying they have not worked on this type of key worker they are working it in stages they are currently on phase 2 and that will be next my work has out it through as holidays for me at moment its supermarket I work in so this is classed as key worker but they have no accomodation for that type and are keeping me updated
