Covid-19 Test and Trace Support Payment

A £500 payment is available in some situations to support people on low incomes who are unable to work from home and will lose income if they are required to self-isolate because of Covid-19.  The individual must have been told by NHS Test and Trace to self-isolate and other eligibility criteria applies. Please note that people who are (a) double vaccinated; and (b) who had their second COVID-19 vaccination at least two weeks prior to coming into close contact with the positive case will no longer be required to self-isolate and therefore will not be eligible for the payment (unless they test positive themselves). Please see Support payment application for further information and how to apply.
