Scottish Family Payments

If you're on tax credits or certain benefits, you may be entitled to five family payments. Eligible parents of children aged 4 and 5 are being encouraged to apply for Best Start Grant School Age Payment worth over £250. The School Age Payment is open to families who get tax credits or certain benefits and have a child who was born between 1 March 2016 and 28 February 2017. The one-off payment can be used for anything from a new pair of shoes to books or arts and crafts materials. Parents who have deferred their child’s entry to school from August 2021 to August 2022 should still apply before the closing date on 28 February 2022.
