Child Trust Fund: Guidance

This section of the website provides guidance to help understand the child trust fund (CTF) in more detail.

The child trust fund was withdrawn by the Saving Accounts and Health in Pregnancy Grant Act 2010 for children born after 2 January 2011. Further information about this change is contained within the policy section of this website.

In this section you will find links to HMRC leaflets about CTF and Government websites.

We have also provided information about how child trust fund works, how to qualify for it and how payments are made.

Finally, for problems with the CTF we have provided information on how to contact HMRC and CTF appeals.
