Disability Living Allowance

Disability Living Allowance is additional money for people who have extra care or mobility needs (problems getting around) as a result of a health condition or disability. If you are making a new claim in respect of a child, you can receive between £22.65 and £145.35 each week.

Care Needs

You should be entitled to receive the care component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) if you need help looking after yourself for example, you:-

  • Need help with things like washing, dressing, eating, using the toilet or communicating.
  • Need supervision to avoid putting yourself or others in danger.
  • Or if you cannot prepare a cooked main meal for yourself.

Mobility Needs

You should be entitled to claim the mobility component of DLA if, when using an aid, you:-

  • Cannot walk.
  • Can only walk a short distance without severe discomfort.
  • Could become very ill if you tried to walk.
  • Need supervision most of the time when walking outdoors on level ground.
  • Are severely mentally impaired with severe behavioural problems and get the highest rate of care for DLA.
