The Government has announced plans for a substantial cut to welfare support for disabled children under the Universal Credit. The new system will result in many of these children losing up to £1400 per year (£27 per week) compared to the current system – by the time a disabled child reaches 16, this could cost a family £22,000. In total the Government estimates that 100,000 disabled children would lose out under this change.
