    Hi Damian, I am sorry to hear of your sisters recent diagnosis, unfortunately we are not benefit experts, so I can not say which benefits you are eligible for, however you may find it useful to read our ‘Benefits you can claim booklet:
    http://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/PublicationsandResources/Listedbytype/Factsheets/main_content/BenefitsfactsheetApril10.pdf

    Also you may like to call the Benefits Enquiry Line on: 0800 882200, or Disability information and Advice Line (DIAL) ON 01302 310 123, which specialise in benefits.

    As your sister has just been diagnosed I am also wandering whether you and your family have any information on JIA. As here on the helplines we have a lot of useful information we can send out to you, if you Private message us with your full postal address we can send that out to you.

    Best Wishes
    Adele
