Might be worth going to see the disability welfare rights person at your local CAB. I know ours has been a big help for a lot of people in dealing with DWP


Look on the benefits and work website, if you join for about £18 a year, you can access their forum to ask questions and download their helpful guides to PIP etc.

there is a forum called which is incredibly informative on how to navigate the PIP minefield, I wish I'd found it much sooner in my journey as I was already at decision time when I discovered it….

the only times i made any progress on my PIP application was when I wrote to my MP, he responded each time within 24 hours (on a working day) and then I would hear from PIP within the week.
