Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is a benefit for children and for adults under 65 with disabilities. If you are HIV positive and you are unsure whether you are entitled to DLA, this service can help.
Many DLA cases have been reviewed by the Disability and Carers Service (DCS) as the government aims to reduce expenditure. From 2013/14 the government will introduce a medical test for people claiming DLA. New and existing claimants will have to take the test.
If you have been reviewed and are unhappy with the result, or you feel the process has not been operated fairly, we can help you appeal.
We will advise you on whether you are entitled to DLA and how to apply for it. We will also give you guidance on what action you can take if your DLA has been reviewed.
We are working to make this process as equitable and fair to people living with HIV as possible and to support people who have to go through it. We will be working to ensure that the Department for Work and Pensions understands the difficulties that people with HIV who are on such benefits face.
Where relevant our services meet the Community Legal Service Quality Mark, General Social Care Council Code of Practice, Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) Quality Framework, British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) - Ethical Principles and CORE (Clinical Outcomes for Routine Evaluation): clinical improvement for 65% of clients.
We commit to responding to initial enquiries and referrals within two working days.
