USEFUL COVID RESOURCES
- I can’t afford to isolate...
You or your child might be asked to self-isolate but you might be entitled to some financial help while you’re unable to work.
You might be eligible for the Test and Trace Support Payment if you’re usually employed or self-employed and have been told by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS COVID-19 app.
You can find out if you’re eligible here: https://www.gov.uk/test-and-trace-support-payment or see what other help might be available on https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/benefits/coronavirus-getting-benefits-if-youre-self-isolating/
You could be fined £1,000 if you don’t isolate when you’re told to or up to £10,000 if you’ve broken the rules before.
