Mobility Component 1.

nathansscope Community member Posts: 1 Listener
I’m writing to ask for some advice about the “planning and following a journey” part of the pip form.

for some context I have had chronic kidney disease since I was 16, due to Alports syndrome which also affects my hearing (I have hearing aids but still struggle to hear)

I have always had low daily living and high mobility but on my most recent review decision, I decided (based on advice given to me by my social worker) to get a mandatory reconsideration as she felt i should be getting high daily living

i did this and was then awarded high daily living however my mobility was reduced to standard rate even though no changes were reported in regards to that..

I have 8 points for moving around and was previously on 4 points for planning and following a route but this has been put down to 0

no real explanation for the removal of these points has been given..

my social worker has managed to get us another reconsideration on the basis that the first reconsideration was on pip this one is ADP
if anyone can help me with this I would really appreciate it, as it stands I will be losing my mobility car (my freedom) if I can’t get this sorted out
