As part of our Counting the Costs campaign to stop families going without the basics like food and heating, we’re encouraging parents to find out about the benefits they might be entitled to.
Over the last month we’ve been focussing on Disability Living Allowance (DLA), the main benefit for children and adults with a condition or disability. Many families are missing out on this vital source of support because of confusion about who is eligible for the benefit.
Now, to accompany our recent DLA myth-busting news story, our benefits expert Derek Sinclair has made a podcast about some of the misconceptions that are preventing parents from claiming DLA. In the recording Derek explains when a child might be eligible for DLA and what factors should not stop you making a claim.
We know that parents like to digest information in different ways, so we hope the podcast offers another way for you to find out whether your child might be entitled to claim.
