    Hi @PADDYDUB

    You should have savings under £6,000 and various benefits are disregarded (PIP).

    If the grant is for someone 18 years or younger, then there is no means test.

    You will have to provide full financial disclosure at the time of applying for the grant, I suggest you contact your local council direct.

    You have a statutory right to apply for a grant.

    They will send an OT to undertake an assessment of the disabled person’s needs.

    This is a “tapered” benefit, so you should be entitled to some funding.
