For families of children and young people with SEN and disabilities helpline 01273 772289

help with DLA and PIP

If you live in Brighton and Hove and you want to make a claim for Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment, Amaze can offer you advice and practical support.

pounds-for-webAmaze offers the same advice and support to parents living in Brighton and Hove wishing to claim Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for their adult son or daughter up to their 20th birthday.

Telephone Advice

If you call our helpline number on 01273 772289, we can give you 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.


We also have a handy fact sheet called Tips for claiming Disability Living Allowance and detailed page by page notes of the sorts of things other parents have found useful to include.

One to One Support

Even with lots of advice, and a good friend, we know it can still be hard to put pen to paper. If you feel really stuck, we may be able to offer you individual help. We have a small team of volunteers who can make home visits and help you think through how to make a strong case. And if you find that writing stuff down is hard, that’s OK too – our volunteers are happy to fill the forms in. But please be aware that this service is only available in school term time. Ring our helpline to ask for one to one help or read more in our DLA Service Leaflet.


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