Your daughter may indeed qualify for DLA if the level care and assistance required is beyond that normally required by a child of similar age. However, with the current austerity measures, getting the award may need a fair bit of determination on your part.

 

I'd suggest contacting a charity such as Diabetes UK and see what help they can provide, both in terms of support and helping with a DLA claim.

No. DLA only exists for children under 16. Once you turn 16, it's PIP.

 

Aha! :thumb: thank you, every day is a school day as they say!

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!
