    Hi @wheatleyus , welcome to the Community, I am a new community champion and myself have been through redundancy and know how stressful it can be. Depending on your chosen career it may be useful registering with employment agencies as this is the main way employers now recruit. Hope you get everything sorted and good luck in your job search.

    Thanks for your msg. I made a start today, by submitting an application. So feel a sense of achievement

    Will need to talk with my nanny regarding the options. My son is autistic with an EHCP, so it is not straightforward to change schools. I need to change mainly because of the location, and because he can't access the afterschool club, hence the need for a nanny. It caused a lot of problems before, when I didn't have a nanny...time off from work. Which ultimately I believe, led to the redundancy.
