Scottish Child Payment
Changes to Scottish Child Payment took effect on 14 November 2022. From 14 November it is available for eligible children under the age of 16 and is increased in value to £25 a week for each child.

You will need to take action to apply for the Scottish Child Payment even if you currently receive Bridging Payments. Bridging Payments are coming to an end, with the final payment due in December 2022. No further Bridging Payments will be made once these awards have been made. If you are eligible for a Bridging Payment in December, you will still receive it whether or not you have applied for Scottish Child Payment.

If you are eligible, and have responsibility for one or more children aged 6 to 15, you need to take action after 14 November 2022 to ensure you receive the support you are entitled to. Please click on the link for more information about this payment: Scottish Child Payment

Dalkeith Storehouse
From 9th January 2023, requests for food parcels can be made to Dalkeith Storehouse. Please get in touch if you would like us to share the referral details with you.
