More people can claim Self-Isolation Support Grant

The first minister turns to the eligibility for the self-isolation support grant of £500.

Ms Sturgeon explains that from next Monday 7 December, the range of people who can claim will be widened.

After 7 December, people will be able to claim the grant if one of their children has to self-isolate.

After that date you will also be eligible even if you don’t get Universal Credit but your local authority thinks you would qualify if you applied for it, helping more people to get the grant.
