#Maternity Benefits
United Kingdom

As of the 11/04/2011 the Sure Start Maternity Grant qualification criteria will change, the biggest change being if there is another child under 16 you will not be allowed the grant.

What do they expect people to do? Keep everything for 16 years just in case? For the Lone Parents claiming benefits how are they supposed to by what a baby needs? Answer: They can't especially with health guidelines regarding cotdeath/sudden infant death syndrome e.g a new cot mattress, moses basket mattress and for safety in the car a new car seat must also be bought. Most other things are safe to be second hand.

We the undersigned request parliament to change the qualification guidelines of the Sure Start Maternity Grant.
