£500 support payment if your child has to isolate.

Low-income parents are eligible to receive £500 from the government if the school says their child has to self-isolate. 

This scheme is offered to parents on a low income, who are unable to work from home and need to take time off work to care for a child who is self-isolating.

It is open to parents and carers of children aged 15 and under, as well as parents of young people aged between 16 and 25 with an education health care plan (EHCP).
