School Age Payments

Our Financial Wellbeing Officers can support River Clyde Homes Customers to apply for the Scottish Government School Age Payment.


3 June 2024

Do you have a child starting School this August?

If yes, (and if you receive certain benefits) you may qualify for The Best Start Grant School Age Payment of £314.45.

This payment is to help with the costs of preparing for school when a child is old enough to start Primary 1. The application window for children born between 1 March 2019 and 29 February 2020 opens on 1 June 2024. You can get the payment for multiple children, as long as each child is the right age when you apply.

We're happy to help our customers with the application process - If you would like to discuss this, please call our Financial Wellbeing officers today on 01475 788887.
