This is a Benefits advisor question really, I'm sure I tried direct contact in the recent past with Scope? (I contacted a lot of organisations).
I wanted and still want, representation at a PIP Tribunal hearing. The date is this Wednesday, hence me asking this question a couple of weeks ago!
Any answers, please?

    Hi @NSAblue - I'm afraid we don't have the resources to offer tribunal representation. Check our list of local independent advisors to see what's available in your area but I'm afraid representation is hard to find. Check out our information on appeals to help you prepare and good luck, Alex

    NSAblueNSAblue,

    I'm so sorry, we are a virtual team & don't offer representation. I'm afraid the list is the way to go.

    If you don't find someone, the appeal guide is really good, and the tribunal panel should be sympathetic to your situation as an unrepresented appellant.

    Will
