Benefits

People who are showing the symptoms of Huntington’s disease may be entitled to a number of benefits.
Here are some good places to look for further information:

  • Services such as Turn2us give valuable tools for looking at what people can apply for.
  • Local benefits services, disability services and Citizen’s Advice may have capacity to help with form filling if it’s needed.
  • The government website Gov.uk has extensive information on benefits for disabled adults, children and carers.

Huntington’s Disease Association welfare grants

We run a welfare grant scheme for people with Huntington’s disease. Grants are available up to £350 per person per year under certain circumstances.

Contact your local Specialist Huntington’s Disease Adviser for guidance on our eligibility criteria and to request an application form.
