Benefits and Grants
Benefits for families raising children and young people with additional needs and disabilities really help with day to day costs.
We know, from the Extra Costs Commission enquiry, that life costs more if you have a disability. Our families have to spend out on things like equipment, continence supplies, getting to hospital appointments, extra bedding, keeping warm – and lots are going struggling to make ends meet.
