    You'll need a doctor's letter explaining why you need a home visit and unless the centre is in your hometown home visits aren't just given as the first option and some times they would rather see you in the centre than at home so they can choose to ignore the doctors letter

    Also make sure you'e got all your evidence from doctors ,  therapists specialists including a couple of family statements that know you well and know how well the condition affects you as dwp won't get the evidence from anyone only what you supply even though their guidelines say not to pay any fees for evidence as they'll get it truth is they won't get the evidence or contact anyone they tell you not to pay fees just so they can pretty much call you a liar and reject the claim
