    Welfare was an alien concept to the Met in the 80s, I hope it has changed. In 1988 as a recently seperated father with three children who I had custody of, one of whom had a disability, I made an appointment with the ‘welfare’ department to see if they could assist in any way. I was unfortunately unable to keep the appointment as I was refused entry to the building as children were not allowed in.
    So no advice re child care was available there.
    I can laugh about it now.

    Welfare…plenty of fine words are said but if you are ill and they can ‘adjust’ your duties, even if that means very little in reality and you are still deployed on the front line doing everything everybody else is doing, they can threaten to reduce your pay by 8% and eventually sack you. That’s what’s happened to me! Arguably my issues was caused by long hours and no breaks. This isn’t accepted however. Conveniently.
