Where can I get support with my DLA forms?

DLA forms have changed significantly over recent years, and the guidance which now comes with the form was written with input from a number of carers groups. Cerebra http://www.cerebra.org.uk produces a very useful guide to completing DLA forms, which can be found on their website. There is also information on disability specific websites such as National Autistic Society http://www.nas.org.uk, National Deaf Children’s Society http://www.ndcs.org.uk and The Downs Syndrome Association http://www.downs-syndrome.org.uk and many of these have benefits advisers.


If you need face to face support, the following organisations may be able to help. It is a good idea to contact the organisations in good time, as there are often time limits on when the form needs to be returned.
