Key workers childcare RAF Lossiemouth – RAF Lossiemouth is continuing to deliver 24/7 support to UK Defence tasking through Quick Reaction Alert cover and Maritime Patrol activities together with mobilising and deploying RAF personnel to support the national response to COVID19.

  • As such, there will be RAF personnel who require access to emergency childcare provision in the local area when they have no other alternative.

RAF Lossiemouth is committed to minimizing the numbers of children requiring emergency childcare in the region:

  • All RAF personnel who believe they require this support should contact their Chain of Command in the first instance for further direction and guidance on how to apply.
  • RAF Lossiemouth personnel are NOT to apply directly to Moray Council as it may be possible to adjust work arrangements to enable childcare at home.
