Self-isolation Support Scheme

The Minister for Housing and Local Government has announced the expansion of the Self-Isolation Support Scheme to include parents and carers of children who have been asked to self-isolate. The self-isolation support scheme administered by local authorities provides up to £500 to individuals on low incomes who are required to self-isolate due to a positive test result or because they have been identified as a close contact of a positive case by  Test Trace Protect (TPP). The extension to be announced will extend the payments to parents/carers who have to care for children who are self-isolating as a Test Trace Protect (TPP) contact or as a result of a positive test.

Further information on the self-isolation support scheme is available.  Further copies or the letter are available from
