Earlier this week, the Scottish Government announced a one-off payment for Scotland’s lifesavers and care-givers on the frontline throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The Scottish Government’s announcement provides information on the one-off pro-rated £500 payment, and sets out those categories of workers who are eligible. This includes Personal Assistants for adults. We are confirming the details of the payment mechanism with partners, and we reiterate our heartfelt thanks. We will make more information available shortly.
