Support for those self-isolating

How we can help if you are self-isolating

Making sure those who have COVID-19 (and those who have been in close contact with them) self-isolate is one of our most powerful tools for controlling the spread of coronavirus.

Self-isolating, where friends and family or delivery services bring supplies to your door, helps prevent your family, friends and community from catching the virus, as well as helping to protect the NHS.

While self-isolating you must stay in your home for the length of time you are told to by NHS Test and Trace.

However, there are a range of support services both financial and practical you can draw on. You can find details on our website.

From Monday 28 September, it is a punishable offence not to comply with an official instruction to self-isolate, with fines starting at £1,000 and rising to £10,000 for repeat offenders or serious breaches.
