Coronavirus follow-up survey

We conducted a second survey of our members and other providers of wraparound care (before, after-school and holiday clubs) from 2 to 14 August 2020. The aim was to follow-up on our previous survey in the middle of May, to see how providers are faring now, following more than four months of closure and with the prospects for re-opening in September remaining uncertain. The results make worrying reading.
