I had a spinal fusion in my neck in early March. I am completely unable to care for my 2yo daughter and my 5yo ASD son. I had assistance through ACCS and this has been taken away with only 2 days notice. It has caused a huge amount of stress at a time I should be resting and focussing on my recovery. I am facing a long recovery in a very difficult situation with a child who is increasingly agitated with the isolation of being stuck at home. My husband is an essential worker who leaves very early and if we can't continue with in home care he will be forced to take unpaid leave to care for our children. This decision has left our family feeling very vulnerable.

I rely on in home care and at the moment it looks like I will not get free childcare instead I will lose all the care I was receiving. I am scared my educator will not be eligible for job keeper so will be out of work. How is this happening to an essential service? Why can they not grant all workers at least the job keeper payment or allow us to pay them a gap fee. I don’t understand. They scrap the ccs, cut the payment drastically then prohibit ihc from charging families. What the heck logic is this?
