Self isolating and need financial support?

If you are having to self-isolate and do not qualify for the £500 Test and Trace Support Payment, you may be eligible for support through the North Yorkshire Local Assistance Fund.

In addition to its usual support for people and families on means tested benefits, the fund is also currently running a specific Covid Self-Isolation Grant Scheme.

Support with food and energy costs is available to anyone who is self-isolating either because they have tested positive or have been told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace.
