Best Start Grant

Best Start Grant provides financial support to families on low incomes at key transition points during a child’s early years.  It aims to help reduce financial pressure by helping people buy, for example, equipment that they’ll need for a baby, or to help with costs when preparing for nursery or school.  It’s available both to people who work and those who don’t, as long as they live in Scotland and get certain benefits or tax credits.


The Best Start Grant is made up of 3 separate payments:

•          Pregnancy and Baby Payment.

•          Early Learning Payment.

•          School Age Payment.
