I have chronic arthritis, I live a nomadic lifestyle which makes it harder. I had my DLA taken away in 2015, I have been trying to claim pips since then. But every time I try I get evicted and moved on, or my relationship has ended and I have had to move. This has just happened to me again, I have an appeal in Scotland where I moved over a year ago. But now I am on Salisbury plain in Wiltshire, and cannot get back up for my appeal. Can anyone help me please?

    Hi Mardi and welcome

    It must be hard moving all the time
    as regards to your appeal, if you really cannot make it there are options
    It is possible to have your hearing on the telephone
    It may be possible to have a skype hearing
    As a last resort you could change to a paper based hearing

    Ring the tribunal clerk to see which option they can offer
