DHS has just released a few updated sections on their website which  may be interest as they have been developed with a particular focus on parents. You are encouraged to have a look at the below links.

A new section on  Having a baby is available. Here you can find useful information about things parents need to know before their baby is born, when the baby is born and after the birth.

The Centrepay service  is also now available for DHS customers. Attached is a short article that goes into further detail about this service. Please circulate this information to service users.

Another service is Payment finder. This tool is extremely useful for people who would like to see what payments they might be eligible for. Please note that all payments are assessed on customers’ individual circumstances so sometimes the actual payment can differ from the one shown though Payment finder.
