TAGS

SmartStart is an online tool, designed for smart devises as well as desktops giving easy access to services and support during pregnancy and baby’s first years. Member of the Regional Steering Group on CRVS, Jeff Montgomery, has led this work as Registrar-General and have also included colleagues from health, taxation and social security ministries. Birth registration is a foundational component of the new service. At the same time as registering their baby parents are able to get a tax number for the child, receive entitlements and apply for extra financial assistance. Future releases will link to early childhood education and issuing of passports.
