Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for Children with SEND

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 much more looking after than a child of the same age who does not have a disability

They will need to meet all the eligibility requirements.

The DLA rate is between £23.20 and £148.85 a week and depends on the level of help the child needs.

For more information on how to apply please see the Applying for Disability Living Allowance (DLA) Leaflet
