My son who has been ill with agoraphobia since been 14 years old was on dla low rate for mobility side had to be reassessed for pip they agreed on a home visit as he was unable to attend  I attended with him as he won’t speak to people that he doesn’t know alone the outcome was he was awarded no points , I have started the tribunal process and are awaiting a date and are seeking help from welfare rights which has a long waiting list in our area so not holding my breath I understand the government have made changes in this so how will this affect us and is there any thing I can say at the tribunal to help us . My son has to be accompanied at any time he has to go out with a person that he knows usually a short journey to doctors every thing else has to be done for him ie shopping any advice please
