EY: Healthy Start Extension Guidance – for families with ‘no recourse to public funds’

Quick Navigation

Apr 21 2023

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has temporarily extended the Healthy Start scheme to British children (aged under four years old), whose parent/guardian meet the financial eligibility criteria and are excluded from claiming public funds as a consequence of their immigration status, or their lack of immigration status.

Healthy Start can be used to buy, or be put towards the cost of, fresh, frozen or tinned fruit and vegetables, fresh, dried and tinned pulses, plain cow’s milk and infant formula. Healthy Start beneficiaries on the temporary scheme will also receive free children's vitamins by post.

The attached guidance can be used to help applicants access the scheme: Application Guidance April 2023
