Coronavirus (COVID-19)—bereavement scheme for NHS workers' families updated

The Home Office has updated its guidance webpage 'Coronavirus (COVID-19): bereavement scheme for family members of NHS and health and social care workers' to clarify that extended family members eg parents or grandparents may also be granted settlement in 'exceptional and compelling' circumstances. The guidance states that '..this could include, for example, where the person concerned formed part of the deceased worker's household and they can show that they had significant dependence on them to meet their care needs'.
