Family Benefits


This section is about the most common forms of financial assistance that families with children may be entitled to. These include:

  • Child Benefit
  • Tax Credits
  • Sure Start Maternity Grant

Parents and those responsible for a child should check their eligibility for these benefits as soon as possible as claims can usually only be backdated for a limited period. More information about each of these is available through the links on the left hand side of this page.
