Family and friends can contribute too 

Family and friends can also contribute to a child's Child Trust Fund or Junior ISA, as long as the combined amount does not exceed the contribution limit of £4,368. 
You also have the choice to set up your own Gifters online My Plans account after making the contribution to the child's Plan making it easier to make a payment. 


Gifts cannot be reclaimed and combined amounts cannot exceed the contribution limit of £4,368, running from birthday to birthday for CTFs and tax year for Junior ISAs.
