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 more looking after than a child of the same age who doesn’t have a disability.
They will need to meet all the eligibility requirements.
The DLA rate is between £21.80 and £139.75 a week and depends on the level of help the child needs. The child may need an assessment to work out what help they need.
