Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for children may help with the extra costs of looking after a child who:
- is under 16
- has difficulties walking or needs much more looking after than a child of the same age who does not have a disability
They will need to meet all the eligibility requirements.
- What we can help with
- Information on government/council support schemes
The DLA rate is between £24.45 and £156.90 a week and depends on the level of help the child needs.
