    First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced that the Scottish Child Payment will be doubled to £20 per week per child from April 2022.

    There are more than 106,000 children aged under 6 currently living in households that receive payments. The payment is designed to tackle child poverty, providing regular additional financial support for eligible families.

    The benefit, will be fully rolled out to children under the age of 16 by the end of 2022, subject to data on qualifying benefits from the Department of Work and Pensions. More than 400,000 children could be eligible for the payment from that point.
