Information about benefits and other services

We often hear from people who are unsure whether they're eligible for welfare benefits, or how to go about claiming if they are.

Find out about the benefits you may be entitled to and how to claim them.

Disability Living Allowance (DLA)

DLA can be given for children under 16 years of age who have a wide range of medical conditions including behavioural and mental health conditions as well as learning disabilities and developmental delay.

Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

PIP is the main disability benefit for people of working age with a disability. The purpose of PIP is to help with some of the extra costs associated with having an illness, disability or mental health condition.

You can get it on top of Employment and Support Allowance or other benefits. Your income, savings, and whether you’re working or not don't affect your eligibility.

With the awesome people at Benefits and Work, we're now able to provide you with detailed information about making a PIP claim or appealing a PIP decision. If you like a PIP Claim Pack or a PIP Appeal Pack, please let us know in the form at the bottom of the page.
