With schools welcoming back children in all year groups from September, we have created new guidance on how employers can support their staff with childcare responsibilities.
As some childcare providers have reduced their services or ceased operation, your staff may be experiencing stress, both financially and logistically, as they source alternative childcare, which may be unfamiliar and more expensive.
It's important to consider how NHS organisations can provide flexibility to employees during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, as staff work through the challenges of balancing work with childcare arrangements.
Our guidance covers the following areas:
- Childcare through the summer.
- The new school term in September.
- Providing flexibility as an employer.
- FAQs on supporting staff with childcare responsibilities.
