Summer Childcare for Key Workers

22 June 2020

Glasgow City Council has extended the deadline for Families of Key Workers to apply for childcare over the summer. Here is the message from their website:

  • School Holiday Childcare for School Age Families of Key Workers Late Application Process Open - Update Friday 19 June 2020

As the school holidays are approaching, we are conscious that families of key workers will still require childcare throughout this period. If you and your partner, are keyworkers from the following  categories and require childcare over the summer period, you will need to apply here.

Due to demand, we have extended the closing date to 12 noon on Wednesday 24 June.  However, all applications that are now received will be considered as 'late applications'. We will endeavour to review these as soon as possible but cannot guarantee you will receive a place.  Parents should make alternative arrangements until we contact you.

The following categories will be applied when deciding who will get access to available childcare and from Scottish Government guidance.

  • Category 1 - Health and Care workers directly supporting COVID response, and associated staff; Health and Care workers supporting life threatening emergency work, as well as critical primary and community care provision; Energy suppliers (small numbers identified as top priority already); staff providing childcare/learning for other category 1 staff.
  • Category 2 - All other Health and Care workers, and wider public sector workers providing emergency/critical welfare services (for example: fire, police, prisons, social workers), as well as those supporting our Critical National Infrastructure, without whom serious damage to the welfare of the people of Scotland could be caused.
  • Category 3 - All workers (private, public or third sector) without whom there could be a significant impact on Scotland (but where the response to COVID-19, or the ability to perform essential tasks to keep the country running, would not be severely compromised).
