    Hi @Paigemma welcome you to the community.

    If your other daughter is under 18 have you applied for Disability Living Allowance for them?

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    That's incorrect advice, sorry. DLA can only be claimed if a person is under 16. If they are over 16 then it's PIP now and not DLA. PIP has replaced DLA.
