    Hello @eds1, @Ami2301 and @janejr and welcome to the community. I'm very glad you have found your way here and look forward, hopefully, to getting to know you.
    Don't be shy of telling us about yourselves or of asking us any questions. The better we get to know each other the more easily we may be able to help.
    Warmest best wishes,
    Richard

    Hello Jane (I'm guessing :) )
    and it is good to hear from you. You're obviously doing fine where the site is concerned, and it was lovely to find you here greeting other newcomers.
    However, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask them. I've been here since last December, I think, and to some extent am still finding my way around.
    What matters is to establish what - if anything - you might need from us in the way of help and support, so that we can look at how to provide it. If you're here only to chat and make friends, or to support others, that's absolutely great too.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard

    Hi @RichardVR thank you for your kind welcome. My name is Ami, I only joined yesterday and within seconds I didn't feel so alone anymore. I have wrote a couple of posts myself and commented on a few others. Being on here really has helped me to distract myself from the struggles I face. It's lovely to feel part of a community

    Thanks for your reply Ami But I'm not sure as yet if I will appeal the decisions,  PiP are very hard to deal with compared to DLA !   PiP can't even be bothered to get a change of address right !!  I'll be back when I've decided on what I'm doing in a day or so.

    Hi @eds1
    Hope the decision making doesn't give you too much of a headache!

    Hello again Ed, @eds1
    I notice that among the warm welcomes your main query/queries are about PIP, and you are in vast company in that. It will not surprise you to know, I'm sure, that we have many, many, many queries relating to the 'reformed' benefits.
    I'm just going to put a moderator's ID in here, @PippaScope to invite them to have a look. I suspect the post might be better placed in a PIP or ESA or related forum.
    You might want to have a look at the links at the top of the third column (printed in white, purple background) lower down the page - particularly the 'Talk about PIP/DLA' link https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/talk-about-pip-dla
    Warmest best wishes to you, 
    Richard
