Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for children

DLA for children can help you with the extra costs of looking after your disabled child. Your child must be under 16 and have difficulties walking or needs more looking after than a child of the same age who doesn’t have a disability. The DLA rate is between £21.80 and £139.75 a week and depends on the level of help your child needs. Your child might need an assessment to work out what help they need.
