This half-day course looks at changes to benefits for people starting a family and families with young children, both in and out of work.
Maximising income in the early years is vital for children’s health, education and development. This course aims to give frontline workers a basic awareness to help you to identify problems and refer on where appropriate.
The course covers:
• Financial help available from pregnancy to starting school, including best start grant, best start foods, the new Scottish child payment, child benefit and universal credit
• Help with childcare costs
• Other support available, including for families still getting tax credits
The course is aimed at those with no or limited knowledge of benefits.
Book this course at the special price of £45 per person or book it as an in-house course for £250 in total for up to 20 people for organisations in Scotland.
