The Children’s Handbook Scotland provides a complete guide to benefits and tax credits where children are living away from their parents, including children in kinship or foster care, children looked after by the local authority, and children at residential school, in residential care or in hospital. This edition is fully updated with the latest on kinship care orders and assistance, continuing care, the ‘two-child limit’ and universal credit developments.
- beneﬁt and tax credit entitlement when children are living away from home
- how payments made by local authorities to carers affect beneﬁts and tax credits
- local authority responsibilities to care leavers
- how to challenge decisions.
Fully referenced to legislation and caselaw, and with easy-to-use check lists and examples, it remains an essential guide for anyone working with families and children in Scotland.
