Freedom of Information Request

Self isolation payments - request for information

Received: 13 January 2021

I'm looking for information about how many self isolation payments the council has received for the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme, which was launched September 2020 (see below for exact details of my queries).

I've broken down my requests into sections, but if anything is unclear please feel free to give me a call or drop me an email - I'd be more than happy to clarify anything.

Here are the requests below:

How many applications for self isolation payments has the council received since the scheme was launched, until January 1 2021?
How many cases have been approved since the scheme was launched, until January 1 2021?
How many have been declined in total since the scheme was launched, until January 1 2021?
Could I get a breakdown of how many applications were declined under each of these eligibility criteria headings:
The application was declined because the applicant can work from home
The application was declined because they have not been asked to isolate by Test and Trace
The application was denied because there are not employed or self employed
The application was denied because they are not in receipt of benefits
The application was denied for another reason
For applications denied for another reason (e), could I get a breakdown of applications that were denied because:
The start date of the self-isolation was prior to September 28 2020
No loss of income for people who are getting maximum Universal Credit
No reply to request for information
Live outside the council area and need to claim from another council
How many applications were declined in total since the scheme launched until January 1 2021 because a valid Test and Trace number was absent?
How many cases are pending since the scheme was launched, until January 1 2021?
