Just a heads up to everyone who may be interested.
The £150 Cost of Living Grant for those on Disability Grants IS payable for children.  There had been some confusion as to whether or not this applied only to adults.

See this link and scroll up to Disability Benefits.

The latest Government update confirms this and lists all the Disability Benefits as follows:

"Disability benefits

You may get a lump sum payment of £150 if you’re getting any of the following:

  • Child Disability Payment (in Scotland)

You will get the payment by the end of September 2022."
