Hi, if you go to http://www.familyfund.org.uk and click on grants there's a link to see if you might be eligible, depending on your income, I hope this helps. Smile

Hi,
Thanks for the post.
In terms of applying the criteria in terms of the dla would say yes as such.
Is your total household income below 25 thousand pounds (Not including DLA and child benefit)
But you do need to include any possible housing benefit or council tax benefits etc.
