“Government should pay us what we are worth and respect us for what we do”

Tell us about your job during the pandemic

As a team, we have carried on supporting our core group; Looked After Children and children with English as an additional language. Some older children are going on to Further Education or university and I’ve been helping with some basic literacy work to keep their English skills on track.

What’s your view of how public service workers have responded to the crisis?

People have put their hands up to help in the new ways of working. You would be hard-pressed to find someone who has not gone over and above their job description.

What’s your message to the government?

You can’t print it! The government should pay us what we are worth and respect us for what we do.

How are you going to celebrate the end of the lockdown?

I am going to give my sister a hug! My mother died when I was young and my sister has been like a mum to me. Not being able to hug her has broken my heart.
