Could you be entitled to Disability Living Allowance?

One aspect the Advocacy Service provides is support completing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) claim forms. Completing a DLA form can be a very difficult experience for individuals and families because the questions ask families to focus in detail on what they or their child cannot do. Completing DLA forms can also be very time-consuming.


This information sheet covers the general principles and requirements for making a successful claim. It provides details on DLA, how it is assessed and explains the different components that need satisfying in order to make a successful claim. It provides an understanding of the DLA and the process.
