We are seeing an increasing number of enquiries from single parents who are confused by the, apparent ever changing, government guidance of social interaction due to the impact of COVID-19
A support bubble is a close support network between a household with only one adult in the home (known as a single-adult household) and one other household of any size.
Once you’re in a support bubble you can think of yourself as being in a single household with people from the other household. It means you can have close contact with that household as if they were members of your own.
Once made, you should not change who is in your support bubble.
You can form a support bubble with another household of any size that is not part of a support bubble with anyone else if you:
If you’re a single parent in a single adult household, you can form a support bubble with another household other than the one that includes your child’s other parent. Children continue to be permitted to spend time with both parents, so long as it is safe for them to do so. If you’re not a single adult household, you can form a support bubble with a single-adult household other than the one that includes your child’s other parent.
The government recommends that you form a support bubble with a household that lives locally wherever possible
From 14 September if you form or continue in a support bubble you cannot then change your support bubble.
