LETTER: Help with disability allowances for children

Contact a Family – a national charity that supports UK families with disabled children whatever their disability - is worried that local families could be missing out on a potential £21.55 - £138.05 extra each week because they wrongly think they’re not entitled to Disability Living Allowance (DLA).

Visit www.cafamily.org.uk or call our free helpline on 0808 808 3555 so we can talk you through the rules for getting DLA and send you our DLA guide which includes tips for filling in the claim form.
