The Government has announced a new payment for parents and guardians during this period.
Parents and guardians might be able to get a payment of £500 if either:
- They have been told to self-isolate because of coronavirus (COVID-19) and they cannot work from home;
- They’re the parent or guardian of a child who has been told to self-isolate and need to take time off to look after them.
Government guidance is available here: https://www.gov.uk/test-and-trace-support-payment
Bolton have put together a briefing note explaining how this process will work in Bolton and what your role as an early years provider will be to support the process. This is available here.
