The UK Government is changing how we vote. From May 2023, you will need to show photo ID when you vote at a polling station.

In line with recent Government announcements, a support package is now available for certain people who have been instructed to self-isolate by Test and Trace, and are unable to work during this period.
The scheme is to make sure that people on low incomes self-isolate when they test positive or are identified as a contact, which is a legal requirement, and to encourage more people to get tested.
This scheme aims to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and avoid further social and economic restrictions.
More information about the payment, including eligibility criteria and application form, can be found on our website.
