Can me and my kids meet my mum for a walk

Or can only I go for a walk with my mum

I just need clarification because this bit I feel is not clear

I would say it's just you and 1 other person

If you or your Mum are a single Adult household, then yes. Or if it is a support need (including mental health).

Just you and one other person. I agree that part isn’t clear but it does say somewhere else in the document that it’s just you and 1 other.

Clearasmuddypuddles Sun 01-Nov-20 10:03:07

It says YOU (as in a single person you) can meet either;
A) your household
B) your support bubble
C) one other person.

Not all 3 at once.

Just you and one other person. Think about it like this, the rules say you can meet with one other person. So your one other person is your mum. Your mums one other person is you, so she can’t meet you and your kids at the same time as it would be more than one other person for her.

You and your children are a household. You can join up with one other person.

Two single parent households can still form a support bubble.

Unless you are in a support bubble with your mum (in which case the whole bubbles can meet) it's just you and your mum. Both parties needs to abide by by the one person rule - if your mum meets you and your children she is meeting more than one person.

Does it have to be a consistent nominated named person? Or can it vary? I'm not trying to find loopholes just wondered.

Thanks everyone.

My mum lives with my dad , and I have a DP so I guess I can't see her.

My MIL looks after our kids one day each week, which is apparently allowed. So does that mean she can look after the kids but we can’t go for a walk with her outside? That just makes NO sense.

You could leave your kids with your DP and have a walk with your mum by yourself

I see this has now changed and I will at least be able to go for a walk with my mum and my baby while DD is at school !

Wooo!!

Where did you read this? Is it just babies that are exempt then?

It hasnt changed?

You have always been able to meet up with your mum. Or your dad. Just not both at the same time. 1 meeting 1

I really dont understand whats so hard to understand?

Read on the BBC last night that children under school age weren't counted in this scenario- haven't double checked gov.uk though!

They have updated it to say under school age children don't count. Which is great as I have a 1 year old, so can at least meet my dad at the park with her.

If you or your Mum are a single Adult household, then yes. Or if it is a support need (including mental health).

Where did you find the guidance about support bubbles for mental health please? I can only find things that say they are for single adult households.

Racoonworld Mon 02-Nov-20 06:57:22

@TheFormerPorpentinaScamanderq there aren’t support bubbles for mental health. Care for a vulnerable person is allowed though. But a large proportion of the population has mental health issues especially now so there is no specific bubble for it. I wish there was I could really do with some help.

TheFormerPorpentinaScamander Mon 02-Nov-20 07:00:48

@Racoonworld that's what I thought. My brother is trying to persuade my mum to close my support bubble with her and have one with him and his wife instead as they both have depression.
I have anxiety and depression (and am a single parent) so I know how hard it is at the moment. But they don't really qualify for a bubble. I suspect however that he will 'win'. He always does. sad

☹️☹️
No, she can’t firm a support bubble with them for that reason, but she can with you. Take care x

TheFormerPorpentinaScamander Mon 02-Nov-20 07:47:08

Thanks @LadyPenelope68 that's how I understood it too. Hopefully she will realise and stick to bubbling with me.

LadyPenelope68 Mon 02-Nov-20 07:48:04

@TheFormerPorpentinaScamander
Fingers crossed for you x

Racoonworld Mon 02-Nov-20 07:52:59

@TheFormerPorpentinaScamander sorry that sounds so hard for you. He isn’t allowed a support bubble, no. I hope you get to keep yours. Another thing for you to mention would be that bubbles aren’t supposed to be changed, so your mum shouldn’t be swapping bubbles now anyway.
