Benefits for disabled children and their families

Level: Basic

This half-day course offers practical advice both on checking that a family is getting all they should and on how you can help make claims effectively. It aims to help you recognise important issues, and equip you to advise directly or refer for specialist advice.

This course covers:

  • An overview of the benefit system with an emphasis on families
  • Who should apply for disability living allowance and how to help
  • Extra tax credits and benefits that are often overlooked

The course is aimed at anyone working with children and families. No previous knowledge of benefits and tax credits is required. If you work with over 16s you may be interested in our course Benefits for disabled children from 16.

Book at the special price of £45 per person or as an in-house course for £250 for up to 20 people for organisations in Scotland.
