When can I get the Best Start Grant?

The Best Start Grant includes 3 different grants:

  • The pregnancy and baby payment- to help with the costs of pregnancy or having a new baby. Families will receive £600 from 25th week of pregnancy to 6 months after the birth of their first child and £300 on the birth of any following children. If you have twins or a multiple birth £600 is payable per child, if you have no other children living with you. If there are other children living with you, it is £300 per child in a multiple birth, plus one supplement of £300.
  • The early learning grant – a payment of £250 when your child starts nursery. The early learning grant and the school age grant will be paid from summer 2019. If you did not get the pregnancy and baby payment you can still apply for this part.
  • The school age grant– a further payment of £250 to help with the additional costs when your child start school.
    If you have twins or a multiple birth £600 is payable per child, if you have no other children living with you. If there are other children living with you, it is £300 per child in a multiple birth, plus one supplement of £300.
