A brand new benefit for low income families is now open for applications.
The £250 School Age Payment is for families with a child old enough to start primary school  this August.
The payment is part of the Best Start Grant, a package of three payments for families in receipt of eligible benefits - including Universal Credit, Income Support, Housing Benefit and tax credits - to help at key stages in a child’s life.
