I have to honest I didn’t even know what furlough exactly meant before this crisis but now not only fully versed I am actually been put on this from next week.
I know it will be very tough because our living costs are not really going change and the employer decided to only pay the Government maximum of £2500. I know some employers are topping up to make the difference so employees don’t lose much being on furlough.
I have written to our managing agent to request a temporary reduction in rent and they actually acknowledged very quickly that I am not alone in this and they will definitely put a strong argument for us to the landlord. We are also trying to manage all the other out-goings very closely and just hoping this all will be over in a couple of months.
On top of all this, finding it tough to manage metal health.
So, if you like me been put on furlough scheme how are finding it and managing it?
