Disability Living Allowance (DLA)

Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for children may help with the extra costs of looking after an eligible child who: 

  • Is under 16
  • Has difficulties walking, and or,
  • Needs more looking after than a child of the same age.

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.
