Disability benefits information - Disability Living Allowance, Carer's Allowance and Attendance Allowance - has been moved from the public-facing DWP website (www.dwp.gov.uk). This happened on Wednesday 8 March 2006.
The information is currently in the 'disabled people' and 'caring for someone' sections of Directgov. This will mean that from Wednesday information about these benefits (rates, how to claim etc) are hosted solely on Directgov. The existing DWP site will link through to Directgov and inform people that they are choosing an external link.
I want to advise you that this information has been taken down and moved to the disabled people area of Directgov at www.direct.gov.uk/disability.
