Best Start Grant
Best Start Grant (BSG) is a series of one-off payments to help low income households with the costs of having a child. This includes a Pregnancy and Baby Payment, an Early Learning Payment and a School Age Payment. To qualify, families must have been awarded a qualifying benefit, usually Child Tax Credit or Universal Credit.
BSG Pregnancy and Baby Payment replaces the UK Government’s Sure Start Maternity Grant.
