Covid -19 self isolation for vulnerable people

Hi all,

I am new to the forum.
I am an employed part time carer in the community employed by a Care company.
I have type 1 diabetes & have been advised by the Uk goverment that i am vulnerable due to my diabetes.

I do not receive sick pay from my company & i can stress that i am not currently sick.

Can anyone advise me if i am only entitled to SSP?

I have had mixed messages & would like some clarity

Many thanks


One for your Union to advise on ?

As family carers , sick pay does not apply to us.

If it did , millions of us would get a pay rise !
