My teenage son has been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
I was told by his nurse we could claim DLA (disability living allowance)
we have received his decision back but I’m not too sure if he is receiving the correct components. Is there anyone else with a similar situation that can help and what a child with type 1 should receive?

How long ago was that? Dla finished some years ago for new claimants
Although perhaps it's different for children?

Yes, he is under 16.
My daughter made a successful claim for my grandson (then seven) using the Diabetes UK guidance document.
Try claiming the Personal Independence Payment. A complicated application. but could be worth it Keep a copy of what you submit as it could be useful in future years.
You can't get PIP for under 16s, they can claim DLA
yes, sorry i didnt realise. Buenchico's link looks really good
