Please see below the Digital Asset Bank for the Self-isolation Support Scheme, I would be grateful if you could distribute this through your networks and staff teams.
We wanted to let you know that there’s an update on the Self-isolation Support Scheme and how to claim a payment. If someone been alerted to self-isolate by the NHS COVID-19 app, they can now use the app to apply for a £500 payment through the self-isolation support scheme to help with loss of earnings. If you have information on the scheme and how to apply on your website, you may want to review it to make sure it’s in line with the updated guidance. The most up-to-date information on the self-isolation support scheme is available here – https://gov.wales/self-isolation-support-scheme
We’ve created some assets and social media posts to help the message out about applying through the app. In this link you’ll find a Welsh and English social media graphic about being able to claim the payment through the app, as well as a fact sheet that walks through the process of applying for the payment step by step – https://wales.assetbank-server.com/assetbank-wales/images/assetbox/62cd2add-3695-43fe-ae2d-98b4edb0c19d/assetbox.html
Also available in the download link above are animated explainers about the support available to people who are self-isolating. The longer versions cover lots of different elements of the support available, such as financial support, looking after your wellbeing, and what to do if your child is asked to self-isolate, and the shorter versions just focus on the financial support that’s available.
Here are some suggested social media posts for you to use with the app self-isolation payment graphic. These have also been posted on our Welsh Government social media channels, and we would appreciate if you could share those messages on your channels too –
