Hi,
Do you know if there is an organisation who could provide assistance to accompany me to a PIP tribuneral? Either a representative to help me with my case or just someone to go with me? My son who normally does things for me works in a very important job and won't be able to attend. I have contacted welfare rights with no luck. I live near Wigan in Greater Manchester. Thankyou in advance.🙂

    The average waiting time for a tribunal is now 9 months you could put your case on paper and send it to the court and tell them to make a judgement in your absence you will get a hearing much quicker.
    I waited 9 months for a tribunal that i attended and the next one i asked for a paper hearing and got it in 2 months

    Look into Fightback4justice - I’ve heard they’re great at benefits and can advocate

    Welfare Rights in Wigan went in-house (for service users only) years ago. It’s not clear there’s anything left of it. Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre have a worker who does welfare rights advice and representation. No need to pay for a non-local service when you have an excellent free one in your area.
