Parents Urged Not To Miss Out on Disability Support

Parents of disabled children are being urged to make sure they are not missing out on vital SNP Government support.

The Child Disability Payment offers crucial support to help families manage the extra expenses that come with caring for a disabled, chronically ill, or terminally ill child or young person.

Since its establishment in 2021, this program has already positively impacted over 78,000 children and young people, with more than £500 million disbursed to families in need.

Developed in close collaboration with parents of disabled children and charitable organisations, this devolved benefit aims to streamline the application process and reduce stress for families.

Moreover, the program incorporates light-touch reviews for children whose conditions have not changed significantly since their initial application.

This approach ensures that children with lifelong disabilities are not subjected to unnecessary and burdensome ongoing reviews to continue receiving financial assistance.

Alternatively, you can reach out to Social Security Scotland via their Freephone number:

0800 182 2222 (available from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday).
