    Hello @craig83

    Welcome to the community! :) 

    I'm wishing you all the best for your assessment tomorrow. I've never had a telephone assessment so hopefully someone can provide more details than me. You can have someone with you if you feel anxious. I know it is easier said than done, but try to stay calm. For me, I find it hard to remember dates, so I would write those key dates down just in case they ask.

    I don't understand why you've asked this again because i answered your question yesterday on your other thread https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/106245/lcwra-decision#latest

    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.
