Tell us: have you been furloughed since the start of the pandemic?

In July, 1.6m British workers were still furloughed ahead of the scheme’s end on 30 September. We would like to hear from those who have been furloughed since March 2020. What is it like to be paid to stay at home for a year and a half? Did you pursue another line of work, or take up study or new hobbies? Do you expect to return to your job at the end of the furlough scheme?
