I just want to commend this organisation and say that it is money well spent. Having recently been turned down for ESA in June I have had my decision reversed. This is totally due to Benefits and Work resources. They helped me to answer the questionnaire accurately and without compromising my integrity.The information on the Appeals process is also really helpful... check them out for yourself.
