Briefing paper for curates

Posted 21 May 2020

A briefing paper for curates who have been asked to volunteer for the government job retention scheme.

A number of dioceses have already asked curates to volunteer for the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, and more may do so. This is a complicated and unusual situation, and there are a number of important factors for curates, their training incumbents, and parishes to consider. We have put together this paper looking at the legal, moral and practical issues for curates considering furlough in order to help them make wise decisions in this extraordinary circumstance.
