If you're caring for someone affected by sight loss, there are two key benefits - Carer's Allowance and Carer's Credit - that you may be entitled to claim.
If you're the parent or guardian of a blind or partially sighted child aged up to 15, then you could be entitled to claim the Disability Living Allowance on their behalf.
The benefits you're entitled to depends on your own personal circumstances. We have an easy-to-use calculator that asks you some questions about your situation and then tells you exactly how much you may be missing out on.
