Hi there,

We have a 23 year old son, who was awarded a higher rate Mobility indefinitely. We are now in the process of having to fill out the dreaded forms once again! The last time we completed the forms he was under the care of a wonderful physiotherapist who gave us much help in completing the forms. Unfortunately he no longer sees her. Our GP doesn't know of our sons condition well enough. Are there any guidelines that will help us? Thank you.

    Hi @TanyaJ welcome to the community, I think most people here understand just how stressful this process is so you arent alone!

    The Citizens Advice have a great document to help you fill in your PIP forms.

    I hope this helps you out, if you have any specific questions, do ask on the community, there is such a lot of experience here that I am sure someone can offer support.

    Best of luck
