We have just now received the following update re: services who are still closed due to no ESB/water.
- Monday the 16th and Tuesday the 17th. All services remain in payment for those days.
- Force Majeure – Services forced to remain closed from Wednesday 18th onwards due to consequences of the storm on Monday are still in payment this week. These services will be required to complete a Force Majeure Claim Form. Childcare services will have to request this form directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If services do not have electricity or internet, they should contact Online Support at client services team @ 015117222, where Pobal will complete the Force Majeure Form on their behalf. – please note: Monday and Tuesday are not considered force majeure so please do not claim for those two days.
- Payment of staff and charging of parents for outside of the DCYA subventions are a matter for the service providers.
