ESA Eligibility

Hi, I’m currently in full time education and turning 19 in April. A significant portion of my household income has being lost due to the sudden ending of adoption allowance. 

Is there any benefits I can claim in my own right, without it effecting child tax credit or child benefit? If it helps, I’m in receipt of PIP - so the disability premium would likely apply.
