There are a range of benefits available to families affected by immunodeficiencies. The benefits can be for your child, to help them deal with the special needs they may have, or for parents and others who are their carers.

Whatever your income, navigating your way through the benefits system can be complicated and frustrating. The application process sometimes feels like a massive brick wall built to block you from getting the help you need.

It is difficult for us to keep pace with the Government’s changes, so this section will explain what’s available now with links leading to more in-depth information on this website and signposting to external sources of help.

To help with your claims we can provide you with guides from the organisation ‘Benefits and Work’.
