It can be so confusing to understand exactly what benefits and grants you might be entitled to, and even knowing where to start can be overwhelming. However, claiming any benefits and grants that you are entitled to could be a big help every month.
So we’ve tried to make it all a little easier to understand - below are a list of benefits that are available to parents, with information on how to find out if you’re eligible.
You could also try the free Financial Health Check service. A team of friendly, impartial advisors from the CAB network can speak to you over the phone or in person to help you find out what you’re eligible for, and how to apply for it. The advisers are there to help you find the best ways to maximise your income and minimise your outgoings. Call 0800 085 7145 for your free financial health-check.
