This announcement of the rise to the Scottish Child Payment received praise from various poverty charities across the country.

Viv Sawers, the chief officer of Glasgow-based charity Govan Help, shared her “delight” at the latest move by the Scottish Government to boost social security support for families.

Ms Sawers explained: “We see families struggling daily, they have told us what a difference this has made already with the cost of living increases, we look forward to supporting more families to access this as it rolls out to children up to age 16 later this year.

“We know parenting is a really hard job, without financial pressures, this funding will go a long way to removing stresses that can impact on healthy family functioning and wellbeing.”
