I am posting on behalf of my brother who after many tests was diagnosed as having Cerebral Ataxia. He has all the symptoms balance, vision and speech.
He has been trying to get ESA but they deemed him fit for work because at that time 18 months ago he could step onto a step unaided. He couldn't manage it really and it was difficult for him to do. Anyways he has put in an appeal which next week is another health assessment. Has anyone else had to go through this process as clearly he isn't capeable of working. He has just £60 to live on in a council house.
I'd be grateful of any advice and any benefits he can apply for to help.
