Attendance Allowance

What is Attendance Allowance?

Attendance Allowance is money for people who have care needs (need help with activities of daily living such as getting dressed, going to the toilet or having someone to look after them so they do not hurt themselves).  It could include help outside the home.

It does not matter if no one actually gives this help, as long as you can show you need it.

Attendance Allowance does not cover mobility needs.

Age rules: You must be 65 or over

If you are aged under 65, see our Personal Independence Payment information sheet.
