During the COVID-19 pandemic, The Childcare Support Service has not been able to offer the face-to-face support that is usually available to our NHS parents and parents-to-be. We want you to know that we are still here to support you through every step of your parenting journey. We recognise that this may be a particularly difficult time for expectant parents, those who may be experiencing isolation whilst on adoption or maternity leave, and those navigating returning to work during these uncertain times. In response to these challenges, we will be running a series of informal virtual sessions that we hope you will consider.

The Return to Work sessions are aimed at staff who are preparing to return to work. These flexible sessions will be an opportunity for you to speak to a childcare coordinator about finding and funding childcare, or anything else that you might need support with.

The next session will be held 22 September 10.00-11.00 as part of our Maternity Workshop.

If you would like to attend please email chidcare.coordinator@bdct.nhs.uk with your name, email address you would like the MS Teams invitation sending to, your phone number, the Trust you are  employed by and the session you would like to attend.
