What you want to know about us
What's in it for us?
KidStart receives slightly more from retailers than the rate advertised to members. This allows us to cover the costs of operating the service, the charges we incur for making payments to a member's nominated accounts and so on.
There are no charges for members - your children receive all the KidStart Savings you have earned and quite right too! You will never, ever have money taken from your account, for any reason.
Safe and Secure
Security of your personal data and your KidStart Savings is of paramount importance to us. Our Privacy and Security Policy is visible here, but we operate a rigorous multi-tier security approach to safeguard your personal data.
Regulated and Ethical
KidStart is proud to be authorised and regulated by the FCA. The FCA does not regulate all of our activities but we ensure that we comply with or exceed all of the FCA's requirements.
Why do people use KidStart?
Members join KidStart because they are getting something for their kids for nothing.
Joining is easy - we do not require a lot of information and we take care of everything else: Tracking your transactions, collecting KidStart Savings and paying it into your child's nominated account.
Who owns KidStart?
KidStart is primarily owned by employees of KidStart most of whom are parents of young children themselves (none are yet grandparents!). KidStart is also backed by leading venture capital firm, Delta Partners. The KidStart website was built in the UK by Igentics.
