Introduce a furlough-style scheme to protect high-risk workers
Tens of thousands of workers will not be able to go back to work because they still face a high risk from coronavirus. We're calling on the Government to introduce a furlough-style scheme for those who are shielding or high-risk and cannot safely return to work.
People who are high-risk or shielding have made great sacrifices over the last few months to protect themselves, their families and the NHS, and it would be hugely unfair if they lost their jobs as a result.
These people have supported all of us by keeping themselves safe from the virus, now it's time for us to reciprocate by helping to protect their jobs.

No one should have to choose between their job and their health. Help us tell the Government why they must introduce a furlough-style scheme to protect high-risk workers.
