Self Isolation Support Grant Update

The Scottish Government announces changes to Self-Isolation Support Grant to provide support to more people on low incomes.

To be introduced from 16 February 2021, and with eligibility to be backdated to 2 February 2021, the changes will result in:

  • The grant being available to workers earning the Real Living Wage or less, as well as those in receipt of a council tax reduction because of low income.
  • Eligibility for people with caring responsibilities for someone over 16 who is asked to self-isolate, where the carer meets the other eligibility criteria; and;
  • A lengthening of the period during which applications need to be made, with people being able to apply within 28 days of being told to self-isolate.
