    Message from the Local Authority:

    Test & Trace Support Payments

    In the local authority we are not able to award Test & Trace support payments to parents of children who have been unable to attend their education setting due to the school closing/staff shortages. The child/parent needs to have tested positive or been asked to isolate by NHS Test & Trace in order to qualify for the payment. The details of conditions for applying are listed here: Financial Support : Test and Trace Support Payment – A guide to Test and Trace – Southend-on-Sea Borough Council
