The Adult Social Care Infection Control Fund
Received: 25 January 2021
I am writing to you as I am concerned that care staff are not being paid full pay when having to self-isolate or
when off sick with Covid-19.
As you know the Government introduced the Adult Social Care Infection Control Fund in May
2020 and was initially worth £600 million. The purpose of this fund is to support adult social care
providers, including those with whom your local authority does not have a contract, to reduce the
rate of COVID-19 transmission within and between care settings, in particular by helping to reduce
the need for staff movements between sites.
The Adult Social Care Infection Control Fund has been extended until March 2021, with an extra
£546 million of funding. This is a new grant, with revised conditions from the original Infection
Control Fund. It brings the total ringfenced funding for infection prevention and control to £1.146
Please provide me with a list of social care providers within your Borough that have applied to this
