Post subject: Sure Start Maternity Grant
Thought I would mention this topic anyhow, just incase there are mums out there that arent aware its available.

A sure start maternity grant is available is you are on low income or unemployed. You are awarded 500 after your 29 weeks and can cliam up until the baby is three months old see below link

I am a lil confused as I heard a rumour that you have to provide receipts or proof of purchase for the items you buy for LO?!?!?! Not sure if this is true or not as I will run into some difficulty as I have already borrowed money off family members to by secondhand or ebay bundles to make my money go further (being a single parent) So all I would be doing is paying them back with no receipts?? Embarassed oooo bugger!!

If anyone can shed any light as to wether this rumour is true I would be grateful Sad

Provide reciepts for what? You dnt have to pay this money back so why dyu have to prove what you brought with it? It wouldn't make a difference anyway cuz the reciept doesn't prove you used the 500 :/
Once the money is in the bank its yours to spend on whatever you wish. You could use it to pay for a holiday if you wished
