Scottish Child Payment & Wellbeing drop in.

Scottish Child Payment will open for applications for all eligible children under the age of 16 from Monday 14 November.
The payment, which is unique to Scotland, provides direct financial support to eligible families and carers to help with the costs of caring for a child.
From 14 November, around 104,000 children already getting Scottish Child Payment for their children under 6 will automatically see their awards increase to £25.
Subject to final checks on data required from the DWP, when the payment extends to under 16s it is forecasted that an additional 300,000 children could be eligible.
Given the large numbers of children forecasted to be newly eligible we are expecting a large number of new applications. This means that people applying for the first time might need to wait to get their award, but if eligible will see their payments backdated to the day they first applied.

If your child is 5 years of age between 1 March 2023 and 29 February 2024, you should register them at a primary school in your catchment area.

The registration will start on Tuesday 1 and close on Friday 4 November 2022. You will be able to register online. To check all information and evidence you will need to provide to register your child, please visit

Important information about free school meal payments during the October break, a £50 Winter Clothing payment and the Scottish Child Payment expansion.

By Friday 14 October, there will be two payments made to parents and carers of children and young people who attend primary or secondary school and who qualify for free school meals based on family circumstances.

-free school meals payment

-additional Scottish Child Payment expansion payment (being paid to parents in the run up to this benefit being expanded to all children and young people aged 6 to 16).

By Friday 4 November, the £50 Winter Clothing payment will be paid directly into bank accounts. This payment is to support families to buy additional clothing as part of the cost of living and energy bills crisis and will be paid for each child in receipt of School Clothing Grant.

All of these payments are only for families who qualify (are on certain benefits) and will be paid out automatically to anyone who has applied for this school year (August 2022 to June 2023).

If you’ve already applied for free school meals or a school clothing grant, you do not need to apply again.

If you haven’t applied and you receive a qualifying benefit, you should apply by 28 October for a school clothing grant so we can include you in the £50 Winter Clothing payment.

If your child is in primary six or seven, you should apply so your child can get a free school meal as well as getting these payments.

If your child is in primary one, two, three, four or five, your child will automatically receive a school meal. However, if you are on certain benefits then you should apply for free school meals because the council make payments into your bank account in place of school meals during school holidays (spring, summer, October and Christmas breaks).

You should also apply for a clothing grant no matter what primary class your child is in (if you qualify).

For more information on if you qualify, search ‘free school meals and clothing grants’ on the council’s website.
