    This link will tell you what advice agency is local to him. https://advicelocal.uk/welfare-benefits you will need to look for something like a law centre or Welfare Rights. Citizens advice no longer represent at Tribunals.

    If there's nothing near to him then does he have a family member or a friend that can support him during the hearing? Even with representation, he will still need to speak for himself. Lots of people attend Tribunal hearings without representation.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
