Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
Depending on your circumstances, you might also be able to get:
Industrial Injuries Benefit if you’re disabled as a result of work
Constant Attendance Allowance if you need daily care and attention because of a disability
the disability element of Working Tax Credit, if you work and are getting PIP or DLA
What is social care?
Some disabled children and their parents will need practical support both inside the home and outside it. Local authorities have a legal responsibility to help families with disabled children.
Social care is a term that generally describes all forms of personal care and other practical assistance for children, young people and adults who need extra support.
