I am a migrant and how can I apply to access public funds?

How can I get support if I am Self-employed?

Employers/sponsors do not need to report employee absences related to coronavirus (due to illness, their need to isolate or inability to travel due to travel restrictions).

Tier 2 Sponsors do not need to withdraw sponsorship if because of coronavirus an employee is absent from work without pay for more than 4 weeks.
