If you look after a child with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) or you are a young person with special educational needs or disability you may be able to claim benefits such as:
- Disability Living Allowance
- Personal Independence Payment
- Carers Allowance
- The Family Fund
The GOV.UK website has more information about what else you might be entitled to (such as child benefit).
Families InFocus can help you with applications to the above funds. One of the ways we help is through regular, online sessions where we talk you through how to complete the Disability Living Allowance application form. For more details of our online clinics, please contact our helpline.
