Financial support

In addition to the Early Years Funding Entitlement (EYFE/EYEE) families may be entitled to other financial help. See the Brighton & Hove Council fact sheet (pdf) for an overview of the financial help that families may be entitled to and how the council can help families manage their money.

In addition, the Family Information Service (FIS) offers a wide range of information and advice on local services for families in the city, including a New to Brighton & Hove factsheet (pdf). They can be contacted on 01273 293545 or at

East Sussex County Council also provide a leaflet with general information on financial help for families.

Is your family entitled to tax credits? To find out if you are entitled to any benefits, including tax credits, the charity Turn2us has a very useful Benefit Checker, a simple way to work out how much you may be able to claim. Finally, HM Revenue & Customs provides a guide to tax credits and entitlement.
