The NHS Test and Trace Support Payment Scheme which is administered by local Councils is now open. It pays £500 in financial support to people on low incomes who have been contacted by NHS Test and Trace, if they lose money from employment while self-isolating. In exceptional circumstances, you may still be able to receive a discretionary payment award of £500, if you meet all of the criteria in the standard scheme but are not in receipt of a qualifying benefit.
If you are one of our tenants and live in Harrow,Hillingdon, Hounslow, Bicester or Aylesbury, please visit your local Council’s website for the qualifying criteria, further information and links to online applications.
