Test, Trace & Self-Isolate Payment

Administering £500 test and trace support payments for people that were told to self-isolate due to Covid-19

We’ve broadened criteria for the £500 discretionary Test and Trace self-isolation payment, for applicants suffering financial hardship that don’t meet the main national scheme’s criteria. The scheme has also now been extended to include parents and guardians of a child or young person who has been told to self-isolate, where the parent or guardian meet the criteria.
