Belinda Sullivan started this petition to Scott Morrison (Federal Member for Cook) and

Many Education & Care Services in Greater Sydney are on the brink of closure again as Stay at Home orders continue to be extended.  Services are forced to continue to charge parents without the option of waiving ‘the gap’ or find themselves with cancellations of bookings, leaving little to no income to cover permanent wages, rent, insurances etc. Parents are left paying fees for a service that the majority can’t use as they are trying to keep their family safe & adhere to the Stay at Home Orders.  We are asking for additional consideration and assistance, similar to that which was offered to Melbourne Education & Care Services during their ‘second wave’!  We ask our Federal & State Leaders to consider a similar 3 stage plan as we navigate the uncertainty of our future - consisting of a short term immediate relief package, followed by a transition package and finally a recovery package similar to that offered to Melbourne services until January 21! 
We are urgently pleading for this to be put on the table for discussion and action! Education & Care Services have not waived in our responsibility as essential services throughout this pandemic. A relief package would contribute to service ongoing viability & allow families to maintain their current bookings without paying for a service that they can’t use as they adhere to current Stay at Home Orders.
