- Eligible individuals are entitled to a Test and Trace Support Payment or discretionary support payment of £500. This is to support people on low incomes who are unable to work from home if they are told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace and will lose income as a result.
- If you or your partner are experiencing a drop in your earnings and your household income is reduced as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, report the changes at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01223 457762. This includes if you are on a zero-hours contract.
If you are self-employed, you may be able to get help through the Self-employment Income Support Scheme (Seiss). If you are also on housing benefit or Council Tax Reduction, report the changes at email@example.com or 01223 457762 to let the City Council know your self-employment income has dropped.
