Financial support if you have been told to self-isolate

If you have been contacted by NHS Test and Trace and have been told to self-isolate, you may be entitled to financial support. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you are entitled to a lump sum payment of £500. In addition from 8 March 2021, parents or guardians who are not legally required to self-isolate can apply for a Test and Trace Support Payment or discretionary payment if they need to take time off work to care for a child or young person who is.
