Benefiting you

Our volunteer-delivered service helping Brent and Southwark families with DLA forms.

What is Benefiting You?

We understand the financial pressures families with a disabled child face. And we know how life-changing the benefit Disability Living allowance (DLA) can be. But many families miss out on claiming DLA, as they don’t know have access to help to complete the long and detailed form.

Benefiting You is a new service delivered by our trained volunteers, called DLA Supporters. Our DLA Supporters can help you complete the DLA form via Zoom at a time convenient to you.

The service is currently available to parent carers in Southwark and Brent only. We will be looking to roll it out to the surrounding London boroughs as the service grows.

Or for further information, please contact benefitingyou@contact.org.uk

“I just wanted to let you know, with all your help my son has been awarded high rate DLA. I just want to thank you for this and all your help. This will be a massive help to me and my family and especially my little boy with all his sensory toys, nappies – just everything etc.
