help with DLA and PIP

If you want to make a claim for Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment for a child or young person, Amaze can offer you advice and sometimes practical support, depending on your circumstances.

Telephone advice about DLA and PIP

Family getting benefits advice for DLA

Call our SENDIASS advice line for information about where to get the claim forms, what sort of details you might need to include and how long you can expect the process to take.

Factsheets and written resources

We also have fact sheets about DLA and PIP (see the downloads to the right of this page) and, if you give us a ‘pen picture’ of your child’s needs, we can send you  more detailed written resources to help you tackle different pages of the claim pack. Or you can read more about DLA and PIP on this website.

DLA and PIP Workshops

We run regular, free DLA and PIP workshops across Sussex. Check out our events listing for upcoming workshops. For DLA and PIP workshops in West Sussex visit Reaching Families’ website.

One to one support

If you have additional needs, and you live in Brighton & Hove or East Sussex we may be able to offer you individual help. We offer this extra support to young people and parent carers with disabilities or health needs and those with literacy difficulties or English as a second language.

The extra support is likely to be by a combination of phone calls, email, meeting in-person or virtually on Zoom or WhatsApp, depending on what works for you. We can help you draft your claim and pick the right supporting evidence to send in with it.


Amaze always needs more volunteers. Find out how you can help other parents make successful claims.

Give us your feedback
