Supporting you to self-isolate

There are a number of ways you can be supported while you self-isolate. You may need help accessing food while you cannot leave your home, or may need some financial assistance. Here are some options available to you:

Test and Trace self-isolation payments

You may be eligible for a support payment if you live in Trafford and have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace, or identified as a close contact by the NHS COVID-19 app. Find out more about Test and Trace self-isolation payments.

Benefits and grants

There are also benefits and grants that you could claim if you are unable to work, if your household’s financial circumstances qualify. You can find out more information on benefits via the Citizens Advice website.

Trafford community hubs

You can also be supported by Trafford’s community hubs. The hubs can help with affordability and access to things like food and fuel.
