Quids for Kids
The Quids for Kids project is a service that we offer through Citizen’s Advice. We know the benefits system can be complicated and confusing and this can put busy families off claiming. We can help by assessing whether you are able to claim benefits, and can help you challenge benefit decisions if you think you have not been treated fairly.
The project offers which offers specialist advice to:
- Families of children (or young people up to the age of 21) with additional needs, a long-term illness or disability.
- Care leavers.
- Young homeless people.
- Foster parents.
- People looking after a child with a special guardianship order.
All you need to do is complete our Enquiry/Referral Form and one of our specialist advisers will contact you.
