Would you like to volunteer as a DLA Supporter for our exciting new project, Benefiting you?

Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is the main benefit for families with a disabled child. Over 1/3 of these families spend £300+ monthly on costs related to their child’s disability and care, so this additional financial support is vital. But many families miss out on claiming DLA, as they don’t know have access to help to complete the long and detailed form.

In this rewarding volunteer role, you’ll provide this much-needed help and make a massive difference to families’ lives.

About the role

We are looking for volunteers to help families complete the DLA form via Zoom. You can volunteer from the comfort of your own home, or you are welcome to go into our office in London.

We are looking for volunteers from all walks of life and will do our best to support you in your role, whatever your circumstances.

“Thank you so much for helping me with the form. I have received my DLA award today. It will help us in so many ways. I can now buy a new buggy for my son”
