From 12th October, the Self-isolation Support Grant can be applied for by those on low incomes who have been advised by the Track and Trace service to self-isolate, helping to ensure those who are affected and qualify are looked after and won’t need to go to work, reducing the community spread of the virus. The grant is for people who receive Universal Credit or Department for Work and Pensions legacy benefits.
The £500 Self-Isolation Support Grant is delivered though the Scottish Welfare Fund and you can apply via Glasgow City Council’s website: https://www.glasgow.gov.uk/swf
You must apply for this grant within your 14 day self-isolation period. Those who have been asked to self-isolate on or after 28 September but before 12 October will have 14 days from 12 October to make an application. Please see the weblink above for more information about eligibility and how to apply.
