    My job is in a company who are staying open at the moment with a review as to if they can pay wages.  I have an 11 year old and no child Care at all as my Mum is too vunerable. I can’t work from home as I’m a receptionist.  I may be forced to to have to stay at home and/or wait to see how my job lies because of no childcare.  I don’t know where any money will come from as it says I have to take unpaid leave.  £95 a week is only half of what I can survive on if I’d get it plus my Child Tax Credit and a few £s of workingtax credit.  What is there for parents caught in this scenario.  Thanks

    Can you take your son to work with you?

    If some people are working from home, you may find an empty office and settle him with a laptop and some school work or computer games. It’s not ideal but if you can isolate him at work, these are exceptional times and your boss may say yes.
