As I write to you, it’s now eight weeks since the nation entered ‘lockdown’.
I know what a challenging time this is for all of you who are staying at home to protect yourselves, your loved ones and other colleagues, as you adapt to huge changes to your normal way of life. I do hope you’re keeping as well as you can.
As I said in the first of these booklets, it’s incredibly important that we stay in touch and that you know that we are all thinking of you. It’s so good to see many of you connecting on the dedicated ‘In this Together’ Facebook group, sharing the ways you’re getting through this time, as well as through our buddy scheme.
This issue has more information that we feel it’s important for you to be aware of, including answers to your most asked questions and when you will take your holiday, as well as other support and advice. I hope you find it useful and enjoyable.
I’m sure you’ll be starting to think ahead about what your return to work might be like and I want to reassure you that we will support you every step of the way.
Stay safe, look after yourself, and we all look forward to welcoming you back soon.
