IF you have been affected financially by the Covid-19 pandemic and are unable to access funding or support elsewhere the Financial Hardship Fund may be able to assist.
IF you face financial difficulty as a result of an instruction to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace, you may be able to apply for a payment to help you. Only people told to isolate on or after Monday 28th September may be eligible for this help.
Test and Trace Support Payment
People across England are now required by law to self-isolate if they are asked to do so by NHS Test and Trace, either because they have tested positive or they have been identified as a contact. Failure to comply with these requirements, including employers who do not allow employees to self-isolate, may result in a fine of at least £1,000 and up to £10,000 for repeated or serious offences. These regulations only apply in England.
