Survey on the impact of the pandemic on staff with childcare responsibilities

Children colouring in on floor

The Parent and Family Network has created a survey to investigate the impact that lockdowns, and particularly the associated school/nursery closures, have had on colleagues with childcare responsibilities over the last year. We want to hear about your experiences and the things that you have found most challenging and most encouraging during this time.

The survey is open to all members of the University with childcare responsibilities, whether they are a member of the Parent and Family Network or not, and will be available until the end of this term (Friday 26 March 2021).

All responses will be anonymous and we will share our findings from the survey with University leadership in order to provide insight into how to support staff with childcare responsibilities through future policy and practice.

Please use this link to complete the survey online. For any queries about the survey please contact e.mcmanus-fry@reading.ac.uk.

Adoptive and Foster Parents Group

The Network has a dedicated group for adoptive and foster parents, or anyone interested in exploring this in the future.

The Adoptive and Foster Parents Group will be meeting up online for a lunchtime catch-up on Tuesday 16 March at 12:30. If you'd like to attend, please contact Sophie Payne.
