Dear Headteacher/Head of Organisation
You are probably aware of the current industrial dispute between the Fire Brigade Union (FBU) and the Government and the forthcoming planned disruption. Whilst the dispute is not between Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service and its firefighters it does unfortunately mean that on Wednesday 25th September, in order to preserve emergency response cover, there will be some disruption to some of the other services we provide. It is with regret that educational input, such as Childsafe, booked for that day, and on any other days that action is planned, will have to be postponed. It is expected that should further action be arranged by the FBU the dates will be announced in the press.
However, sessions will be rearranged so if you are affected you should expect to be contacted by your local fire station staff in the near future in order to organise a new date. I would be grateful if you could inform your staff accordingly.
We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding of the situation.
Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Working with Vulnerable Families
New NDNA publication for childcare providers
Working with Vulnerable Families provides information on what makes a family vulnerable and on the ways that childcare providers can offer support.
This publication illustrates just how important early intervention is for future achievement and why the government has been right to invest in better quality provision for younger children.
In particular, the publication encourages childcare practitioners to reflect on how they can support vulnerable families through the use of case studies and suggested activities.
Key sections of the book include:
