Help for people with a disability and who might require additional support.
As there is no longer a national register of disabled people, technically you don't need to register as disabled.
There is a wide range of disability-related financial support, including benefits, tax credits, payments, grants and concessions.
If someone living at your address is permanently disabled, you might be able to get a discount on your Council Tax.
If you're over 18 and looking after a disabled child that you have parental responsibility for, you can ask the council for a parent carer's needs assessment.
Caring for a disabled child can make your daily parenting duties, such as feeding, toilet training and getting them to sleep, more challenging.
