About this form
On 20 September 2020, the Government announced a new national Test and Trace Support scheme which started on 28 September 2020 for certain people who are required by law to self-isolate. If you have been told by the NHS to self-isolate, either because you have tested positive for coronavirus COVID-19 or you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive, you may be entitled to some financial support during your self-isolation period. This form is an application for that financial support. For further information please follow the link below

How much funding will be provided?
People from 28 September 2020 being required by law to self-isolate, may be entitled to a lump sum payment of £500 to cover their period of isolation. This payment is targeted at people who are employed or self-employed on low incomes who cannot work from home and have lost income while in isolation as a result.
This form is provided to capture the information required by the Council to verify your eligibility for payment of the grant.
