There is support available to households who have to self-isolate and who need help. This includes:
- the Self-Isolation Support Grant which provides £500 to those who earn less than the real living wage and have to self-isolate.
- Practical support is also available, including food or essential medicine deliveries, through the local self-isolation assistance service. You can either contact your local authority directly or contact the Coronavirus National Assistance helpline – available at 0800 111 4000 (Mon – Fri 9am to 5pm).
