Sorry you have having a foul time Sharon, we are living in difficult times it seems to be making all these assessment ever more stressful, do you have friends and family to help you with paperwork? Mary F x

Go to Citizens Advice, you will find they may help you fight a case.


Garry is absolutely on the button. CAB is brilliant at all this and they do it all the time.

Get in touch ASAP as it takes time to get appointment. When you go take as much info as possible.
