Self-Isolation Support Grant

Self-Isolation Support Grant

Applications for the Self-Isolation Support Grant have opened to assist workers who are asked to self-isolate and would lose income because of this.

The £500 grant will help those who have been asked by Test and Protect to isolate, following testing positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) or having been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.

These payments are designed to help people self-isolate for the required period to stop the spread of the virus, but who would face financial hardship due to being asked to self-isolate and will be targeted at those in receipt of Universal Credit or legacy benefits who are employed or self-employed.

Please contact Lyndsay or John at our office for more information or if you would like to book an appointment with our welfare rights adviser.
