The Government has announced a new payment to support people who face financial difficulty if they have been instructed to self-isolate on or after 28 September 2020.

You may be entitled to some financial help during a period of self-isolation if:

  • You have been contacted by the NHS and asked to self-isolate, either because you have tested positive for coronavirus COVID-19, or are a named close contact of an individual who has tested positive.
  • You are a parent or guardian of a child aged 15 or under (or a young person aged 25 or under with an Education, Health and Care Plan) who normally attends an education or registered childcare setting and has been officially informed to self-isolate for 10 days by the education or childcare provider.

Please see the GOV.UK website for the full and latest information.
