Because money’s usually tight at this time of year, Contact a Family has put together a range of resources to help you check that you’re claiming everything you’re entitled to this winter. Their Money Matters – checklist when your child has additional needs lists financial help available to families in England, Scotland and Wales. They also have a new UK-wide booklet Help with fuel bills and keeping warm and have redesigned their guide to Claiming Disability Living Allowance for children (UK).
These are just a few of the parent guides they produce. Take a look at their resource library or read the full list of all their parent guides. They are free to parent carers – just call their Freephone helpline to order. And don’t forget, they have lots of online advice and support available to you too.
