Relief Staff

Group Consultation Meeting


Why are we changing

  • Continued efforts to increase zero hour staff has not been as successful as planned.
  • Introduction of relief spreadsheet to move people around the business to be more efficient.
  • Turnover of relief/bank staff within Childbase is 34% (103 leavers).
  • Within 3 months, (Oct, Nov, Dec 2013) 20 relief staff left us.
  • Hours lost through SMILE – Over 1000 hours. Increased requirement for us to fill these gaps moving forward.
  • Agency spend would cease. We would not incur any future charges at the current run rate of £14.25 per hour (level 2).
  • Based on what we are currently spending on agency £124,911 (Nov – Jan) we used 8815 hours; under the new contract we would receive an additional 4417 hours for the same cost.
  • This equates to 117 weeks of free relief staff (2.4 practitioners for 1 week in every setting)


  • Kangacrew will supply all relief staff to Childbase in a partnership contract.
  • Childbase will no longer seek to employ future relief staff.
  • All staff currently contracted to work less than 10 hours per month will TUPE to Kangacrew.
  • Relief staff will continue to be offered work within Childbase and remain an integral part of our business.

Our people matter ….

  • Our commitment to people remains a core part of our business.
  • We recognise this announcement and consultation has an impact on our people and it is our intention to ensure a smooth transition for you all.
  • The transferred relief staff remain an integral part of our business.
  • Transferring staff will retain all existing contractual terms and conditions.
  • Transferring staff will also have the added benefit of accessing other work when this is not available through Childbase.

What does this mean for your employment?

  • We are obliged to consult with you because it is a change to your contract.
  • Consultation started when you received a letter from me and will consist of:
      • Letters
      • FAQ's
      • Group consultation meetings
      • 1:1's
      • Email/telephone support from HR
      • Support from management teams and partnership council

What is TUPE?

  • TUPE stands for Transfer of Undertakings and Protection of Employment
  • Regulations designed to safeguard your employment terms and conditions when service provisions change.
  • This means, because Kangacrew will now service our relief needs, the provision has changed and you are protected by TUPE
  • Your existing terms and conditions protected
  • You will become an employee of Kangacrew
  • You may be given opportunity of more hours – a choice
  • Aim to complete consultation and for transfer to be effective 16th June 2014


  • We will write to you by post regularly – please keep your contact details up to date on MyBase
  • Information will regularly be updated on the Intranet under People Matter
  • Contact Sheet – you can contact any of us
  • You can tell us what you think, ask questions and put forward ideas by contacting anyone on the Contact Sheet or emailing
  • You can request a 1:1 with HR over the telephone or face to face

What if I don’t want to transfer?

  • TUPE is designed to ensure you’re protected, therefore during this process your position will still exist and will move to Kangacrew
  • If you do not want to transfer, you need to ‘object’ to TUPE, which means you will be resigning from your position.
  • We urge you to come and talk to us before taking this decision so that we can support you

Who are Kangacrew ?

  • Kangacrew have been trading and working in partnership with Childbase for 10 years.
  • We currently have 5 branches covering the Childbase geographical spread.
  • We will be bringing on a new team to service this contract.
  • The ethos behind Kangacrew and how this will ensure a smooth transition of practitioners transferring.

What can Kangacrew offer?

  • Opportunity for practitioners to earn a higher wage due to more hours being offered.
  • Kangacrew will help retain the transferred staff by offering work at times when Childbase has no requirement.
