Family benefits

If you have children or look after children, there are a number of different benefits available. 

However, many people assume that they aren’t eligible (especially if they are working) or that it isn’t worth claiming, but you could be missing out.

For instance, families may be eligible for Tax-Free Childcare or you may be able to claim back up to 85% of your childcare costs if you are eligible for Universal Credit,

Please take a look below at some of the specific support on offer as well as our  Benefits Information pages where there is a section dedicated to Families, including what discounts and social tariffs you may be able to access.
