The Scottish Child Payment is a new payment for families on certain benefits or tax credits to help towards the costs of looking after a child.
It’s £40 paid every four weeks for each child under six. It opens on Monday 15 February 2021 but the Scottish Government is taking applications now to help them manage demand.
