Hi there,

you will need to contact your local social services and department of social development who will be able to discuss what benefits your daughter may be entitled to. Depending on the age of the father he may or may not have any finances for maintenance, but ideally this would be discussed between you and your daughter, the father and his family to come to some arrangement.
