The DAF can assist:

  • If someone is on temporary license from prison and is going to be staying with you.
  • With essential travel in connection with a crisis or enabling independent living.
  • With travel costs if your child is in hospital (this is via the CAHMS service only. Please speak to your CAHMS contact).

If you are working with an organisation to support you, it may be worth speaking to your support worker or similar before you contact the DAF – they may be able to help you with your application. Click here to find out how to get help to complete an application.
