Lincolnshire Support and Services
Self-isolation Support across Lincolnshire
District Councils across Lincolnshire are delivering a nation-wide scheme to support people on low incomes who have to self-isolate if they test positive for coronavirus and cannot work from home.
The scheme, offering £500 support payments to help workers on low income, will begin on 28 September and will run until 31 January 2021.
The Test and Trace Support Payment has been introduced by the government in response to feedback from local authorities and directors of public health that some residents are struggling to self-isolate due to financial constraints.
The support payment will help ensure that people on low incomes are able to stay at home and self-isolate when they are instructed to do so by the NHS Test and Trace.
It will also encourage more people to get tested without the added pressure of losing income. It is hoped the scheme will help lead to a reduction in the transmissions of COVID-19.
Further information can be found on your District Council website.
