    Hi @brad23, I'm sorry to hear that. Are any of your friends or family able to support you with this?

    We have a lot of useful information about appealing a DWP benefits decision on our website, including some resources on tribunals. You may find the following videos of interest:

     


     

     

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please do get in touch.

    I'm sorry to hear that. It does not surprise me though. With the CAB, they used to have quite a healthy income stream from both the legal aid fund as well as the local authority.
    Legal aid has almost disappeared for the majority of work that the CAB do and with cuts in grants from councils it leaves the CAB pot pretty bare.
