The Department of Health and Social Care has recently agreed to temporarily extend the Healthy Start scheme to British children (aged 0-4), whose parent/guardian meet the financial eligibility criteria and are excluded from claiming public funds as a consequence of their immigration status.
If you think you qualify for the temporary extension and that you meet all the following criteria:
- you have a child, or more than one child, who is aged 0-4;
- your families take-home pay is less than £408 per month; and
- your immigration status includes the condition that you cannot access public funds
Please reply to Healthystartclaim@dhsc.gov.uk stating you believe you qualify and we will be in touch to discuss the application process.
