Scottish Child Payment doubles to £20 a week
Scottish Child Payment has doubled to £20 a week with more than 104,000 children already benefiting from this increase.
The game-changing payment, which is unique to Scotland, was designed to directly tackle child poverty. It is one of five family payments that provide financial support to families on low incomes with children aged under 6.
The benefit will be extended at the end of the year to all eligible children under the age of 16 when it will also increase to £25 a week. Once extended, over 400,000 children could be eligible to receive this vital payment.
The Scottish Child Payment, together with the three Best Start Grant payments and Best Start Foods, will provide families with more than £10,000 by the time their first child turns 6 and £9,700 for subsequent children.
