This project is a two year campaign to encourage families with disabled children to apply for the benfits they are entitled to. The aim is to generate media coverage about families’ rights and through a UK wide campaign which will involve producing new information materials on key benefits and offering specialist welfare rights advice to families via a freephone helpline. The appointment of an Information Officer will give a local presence who can work within the community to raise awareness within these families and encourage them to claim the benefits they are due. This will signifcantly strengthen the ability to help families in severe difficulty.
