star this property answer text <p>Since 2010, over 4,900 public and private infrastructure projects have been successfully delivered.</p><p>In particular, since 2010, the government has earmarked 158 major projects as being of national significance and a priority, including 90 listed in the National Infrastructure Delivery Plan 2016-2021. IPA tracks and publishes the delivery progress of all 158 projects, publishing a National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline document each year. As reported in the current edition of the Pipeline, published in November 2018, the vast majority are being delivered, with 98% completed or on track to deliver.</p><p>In 2018 alone, over 400 infrastructure projects were completed and moved into operation across a number of sectors. In the North West, for example, these included major investments such as the Walney Extension wind farm capable of powering over 600,000 homes; 2km of new flood defences to protect thousands of homes in Rossall on the coast of Lancashire; and the UK’s first Proton Beam Therapy centre at Christie Hospital in Manchester.</p><p>But it is not just major projects such as these which are having a real impact on people’s lives. We are also delivering hundreds of smaller projects across the UK.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Child Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is a benefit for children under the age of 16 who, due to a disability or health condition, have mobility issues and/or require substantially more care, attention and supervision than children their age normally would. If a parent or carer is claiming Child Tax Credits (CTC) and their child is in receipt of DLA, they are also eligible for additional premiums on their award and for childcare support. Parents of disabled children may be also able to claim Carer’s Allowance.</p><p>Universal Credit is designed to ensure that work pays and the most vulnerable in society are protected, making the system fair for claimants and those who are able to support themselves solely through work. The increased work allowance in Universal Credit from April 2019 is assisting 2.4 million working families, with children or with a disability, to become better off by £635 per year.</p><p> </p><p>The government is committed to protecting and supporting the most vulnerable in society. It is for that reason the government has continued to uprate disability and carer benefits by inflation, including the disability elements of tax credits.</p>
