On 23rd March 2020, as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic (Coronavirus), the UK Government announced an enforced ‘lockdown’ which meant that all UK residents were to remain within their households, only leaving for one of four identified essential reasons.
SafeCircle made the initial decision to close their booking system in March 2020 despite the government stating that childcare within the child’s own home would be considered acceptable. This difficult decision was made for the protection of our member families and babysitter community.
With the easing of restrictions, businesses have been able to reopen their doors and more flexibility in people’s movements, including the ability to visit other households, enjoy time at a restaurant, cinema or pub, means that at SafeCircle we are now in a position to be able to offer our evening babysitting service again.
This re-opening of bookings is subject to our new Covid-19 guidance and should be followed by all member families and babysitters to protect everyone and ensure a great babysitting experience. We’d encourage you to read the guidance here.
We are really excited to be able to welcome back our very much missed member families and babysitters, and are looking forward to helping parents gain a little bit of “me” time back after months of challenging restrictions for families.
Accredited training in Cov-19 Infection Control
During the closure of our service, SafeCircle have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that once restrictions had eased, we were in the best position to offer our outstanding five star babysitting service across our operating regions. Part of this plan was undertaking appropriate and accredited training in respect of Covid-19 Infection Control, so that this knowledge could be implemented within our new policies and shared with our babysitters.
Although life is still far from what we used to know as ‘normal’, this step forward for the UK is looking very bright and here at SafeCircle we are ready and waiting to help make your evenings a little brighter by connecting you with a SafeCircle-approved babysitter. So when you’re ready to head out for a meal or cinema date, come and find us and we’ll get you set up.
