Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for Children

DWP (Department of Work & Pensions)



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

Additional Information

The DLA rate is between £24.45 and £156.90 a week and depends on the level of help the child needs.
