What Is A Support Bubble?

What is a support bubble?

A support bubble is a network of two households who meet the eligibility rules to form a support bubble. This article will help to explain what a support bubble is, as not everyone will be eligible to form a support bubble.

Anyone who is in a support bubble, can think of themselves as being in one ‘household’. A support bubble means that you can have close contact with the other household in your bubble as if they were members of your own household. Therefore you do not need to maintain social distance with people in your support bubble.

You should continue to follow social distancing guidance with people outside of your household or support bubble. This is critical to keeping you, your family and friends as safe as possible.

If you form a support bubble, it is best if this is with a household who live locally. It is advised that your support bubble is with a family that lives locally, as this will help prevent the virus spreading from an area where more people are infected.

Who Can Make A Support Bubble?

Not everybody can form a support bubble. However, on the 2nd December the rules changed to widen eligibility for forming a support bubble.

You can form a support bubble with another household of any size if:

  • You live by yourself (even if carers visit you to provide support)
  • You are the only adult in your household who does not need continuous care as a result of a disability
  • Your household includes a child who is under the age of one or was under that age on 2 December 2020
  • Your household includes a child with a disability who requires continuous care and is under the age of 5, or was under that age on 2 December 2020
  • You are aged 16 or 17 living with others of the same age and without any adults
  • You are a single adult living with one or more children who are under the age of 18 or were under that age on 12 June 2020

You should not form a support bubble with a household that is part of another support bubble.
