Does taking on responsibility for another persons child end tax credit award

Hi All,

I’m helping Kinship carer, Cl already has one child and claims child tax credit for this child. Cl has taken in her child’s friend due to problems at home, children’s services have been made aware and are happy with the arrangement and so is the other parent.

Is this deemed a change of circumstances and will Cl have to make UC claim or can cl simply add the child to her existing CTC award? I can’t find anything regarding kinship carers.

Many thanks.
