06. What about childcare for my own children if I have to return to work? As a defined key worker, all our employees will be able to access a school / education setting for your own children. They have continued through this whole pandemic and the local authority have an obligation to meet your child’s needs whilst you work. Should you not wish to access this service, you will need to liaise with your manager about Acorn’s needs to see if you can continue on furlough for as long as possible.
