There are many different sources of financial support available to children with disabilities and their families.  Perhaps most important is Disability Living Allowance (DLA) as a lot of other funding is dependent on this benefit.

Another important route to resources is an assessment by social work (known as a Section 23).

Many families miss out on benefits because the application processes are complex and time consuming.  For this reason, it may be beneficial to start with the support of a voluntary organisation.  Please contact our Community Team on 0800 031 5793, option 1 then 1 , or [email protected] for further information.
