Is there a list somewhere of the things Disability Living Allowance can be spent on?
DLA is to help people meet the additional costs of having a disability and you can spend it however you like. Scope’s research a few years back found that people with disabilities pay on average £550 a month on extra costs related to their disability. https://www.scope.org.uk/publications/priced-out
You might find this old but relevant blog post interesting: http://wheresthebenefit.blogspot.co.uk/2011/02/how-do-you-spend-yours.html
I hope this helps. Please do call us on 0808 801 0448 if you’d like to talk to us about this or anything else!
