    Welcome to the community @Clammy :) Just to let you know, I've moved your post into our 'what benefits am I entitled to?' category, and renamed it so that other members can find it more easily.

    As Janer1967 has mentioned, you may find it helpful to use a benefits calculator to identify which benefits you might be entitled to. 

    Would you feel comfortable telling us a bit more about your situation? This may help our members to identify other benefits that you could be entitled to.

    If the ESA is new style ESA then possibly Universal Credit would provide a little extra but if it is the old income based ESA then she is better off on that. 
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
