    This doesn't make sense.

    The money cannot be released to  a non JISA account in the name of the child (how old is the child)?

    The money cannot be released into an account in the name of a Trustee to hold in bare trust for the child.

    The only answer seem to be for the money to be held by the court and released year by year into a JISA?
