Scottish Child Payment
Scottish Child Payment helps towards the costs of supporting your family. It's a weekly payment of £20 that you can get for every child you look after who's under 16 years of age.
You'll get the payment every 4 weeks if your application is successful.
It's up to you what you choose to spend the money on. You could use Scottish Child Payment for things like:
- travel costs
- nappies and other essentials
- family days out
Scottish Child Payment does not affect any other UK or Scottish Government benefits that you, or any person in your household currently get.
