Mama under lockdown – key workers, kids and crisis comms – one woman’s story

Mothers, fathers, home workers, home schoolers. At some point in the future we will look back at the 2020 coronavirus lockdown and ask ourselves – how the %&@# did we get through that? 

This is my take on what it has meant to be the primary carer of a six-year-old boy, while also trying to fulfil my #CommsHero duties as the internal comms lead at a council with over 8,000 key worker staff. 

If we couldn’t laugh, we’d probably cry, and let’s face it, we’ve all done a bit of both. Spoiler alert – banana bread does not feature.
