Are you entitled to any financial support?

There is quite a lot of financial support available to families who are on low incomes, but it can be confusing to work out what you might be entitled to


Financial support is not just for parents who are out of work, there is also support for working parents, if your income is below a certain threshold.

  • Child Benefit
