Q. How does Covid continue to affect you and your family?
One of biggest worries when COVID hit was that all the ‘temporary’ changes that business/organisations made would become permanent. In some cases this has been good - mainly for people who work in offices who have more choice about working from home. But most of the changes that have stayed have made it really tough for us. Increased prices and reduced opening have really affected us. There are less playgroups, and the ones that have stayed cost more or you now have to book for whole terms. Free attractions have reduced the days they are open. Because there is less to do for families and young children, places are busier. There are also less opportunities for my own development, and for support.
