Disability Living Allowance

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.

Use the DLA claim form to apply for Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for children under 16.

The form tells you where to send your application.

You can order a printed form by telephoning the Disability Living Allowance helpline.
