People on low incomes will be eligible to receive a new £500 grant if asked to self-isolate by Test & Protect Scotland.

The new Self-Isolation Support Grant will help those who would lose income if they needed to self-isolate, such as those unable to carry out their work from home.

This grant is for those who will face financial hardship due to being asked to self-isolate and will be targeted at people who are in receipt of Universal Credit or legacy benefits.

Applications can be made through Glasgow City Council’s Scottish Welfare Fund
