Contact is 'Busting the myths about DLA'

Contact, the UK charity for families with disabled children, wants to dispel some of the many common myths about Disability Living Allowance (DLA) that can sadly discourage parent/carers from applying. The need to have a formal diagnosis is just one of them. For their '#WeLoveDLA ' month, they are setting the record straight on six top myths.

DLA is the main benefit for disabled children in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and is designed to help you with the extra costs of having a disabled child. You can find out more about the benefit, and the myths surrounding it on Contact's website.
