‘Desperate’ domestic cleaners forced to take on jobs despite Covid risk, due to lack of government support, says boss of Dundee firm

The Domestic Cleaning Business Network are working hard to raise awareness for the plight of Scottish Cleaners who are still excluded from all but a few essential cleans yet are not eligible for funding.

Associate Director Kelly says that, while the Scottish Government has ordered the industry to stop all work unless absolutely essential, businesses do not qualify for the strategic framework grants.

Kelly said: “The scary thing is that we are now finding that so many people in the industry are now going out to work putting themselves and others at risk.

“I am totally against this as they should not be working, but what are they meant to do? They need to put food on the table and they aren’t getting the support they need.”

The DCBN have been lobbying hard and have provided free template letters that any Scottish Cleaner can send to their local MP and these can be found here
