Get a free copy of Money Matters – a checklist when your child has additional needs

Tuesday 27th May 2014

We know times are tough. As a parent of a child who has additional needs, you are often entitled to a number of benefits and other financial help. Our benefits expert, Derek Sinclair, has revised our free guide to money that parents may be entitled to.

Money Matters is a checklist of benefits and financial help for families. It covers:

  • help with rent, mortgage and council tax
  • money and vouchers for having children
  • help at school
  • help at home
  • help at work
  • transport
  • practical help, and
  • benefits.

Parents can call our freephone helpline on 0808 808 3555 for a free copy. Or download Money Matters here.

Make sure you're claiming everything you're entitled to.

It's the last chance to fill in our survey and help campaign against benefit cuts affecting disabled children

We are calling on family members who care for children and young people with additional needs or disabilities to take part in some important research about family finances and the impact of welfare reforms. By filling out the survey you will be helping to raise awareness and lobby for change - particularly as welfare reforms continue to hit families with disabled children and young people hard.

The survey won't take more than 20 minutes. We will be keeping the survey open until the middle of June.

Be part of the largest ever research into family finances - fill in our survey.

If you would like a hard copy of the survey or help filling it in please call Contact a Family on 020 7608 8742.
