    Hi Paul,

    Welcome to the community, thanks for joining.

    Sorry to hear that you didn't get mobility. Did you appeal the decision?

    Have you thought about getting a mobility scooter? Would that help you get to the shops etc.

    If your contionon has worstened or you have a new condition you can apply for a chnge of circumstance and hopully get your mobility award back

    Have you applied for an HC2 to help with NHS costs ?
    It is foor people on low incomes and cvers prescriptions, dental costs and some othes stuff
