Disabled person moving from England to Wales

dawn_adams29 Community member Posts: 5 Listener

Good Morning.

A friend of mine was involved in a motorbike accident years ago where he broke his back, neck and both thumbs.  Fortunately he is not wheelchair bound but he is disabled as he now struggles walking unaided and has several painful complaints and some short term memory loss.  As such in his current town in England he is on DLA and high level of PIP, he has a ground floor flat and carers that come in 3 days a week to help with domestic chores, a disability car and attends Headway once a week.

He is considering moving back to Wales from England to be nearer family and friends, but, understandably, is concerned about the transfer of his benefits, what he would be entitled to in Wales and housing. Please

could you advise?
