You may be entitled to claim benefits which can help offset the costs of caring for a child with special needs.  The Barth Syndrome UK has teamed up with Contact a Family, the leading UK charity providing information for parents who have a child with a disability.

Please visit Contact a Family for details of the following:


•             Disability Living Allowance and other benefits

•             Tax Credits

•             Special Educational Needs Advice Service

•             Short Breaks


There is also a wealth of other information on the site, much of which is directly relevant to parents of a child with Barth syndrome. Check out their “Cash Counts” area, Contact a Family’s one stop shop for benefits advice and money saving tips.



We are working on creating some specific resources for young people with Barth syndrome who are moving towards adulthood so please check back soon.
