Getting the right financial support for your family is important, especially when you are caring for a child or young person who has special needs or is disabled.
There are a number of benefits that you may be entitled to. Some benefits can be paid because a child is disabled while others may be paid to the parent or carer for other reasons. For example, the child may be getting disability living allowance (DLA) and the parent may be getting Carer's Allowance as their carer.
