Such payments may be made to a parent or anyone connected with a child the local authority looks after when that person visits the child. The authority may also make payments to a child or to any person on a child’s behalf, when a child visits their parents or anyone connected with the child. Payments can only be made if, without them, making the visit would cause undue financial hardship and if the circumstances warrant such payments.
