Coronavirus, Health and wellbeingMy ex-partner and I share care of our children but I am concerned to return them to their mum as she works in a care home where there is COVID-19. Should I return them to her and is it safe to continue to share their care while she is working in the care home?
CoronavirusIs it OK for me to take my daughter to see her father who lives across the border in England? He thinks its OK but I’m not sure and don’t want to go against government guidelines.
CoronavirusI get child and working tax credits. Do I have to tell HMRC that I have been furloughed from work?
