Evidence for PIP
Hi all, I need some advice, I recently had an assessment from children’s services to see if I’d be a suitable to care for a family members child as they can’t, I gave them a true and honest account of all my illnesses and that of my sons learning disabilities too, as these impact my life daily and I’d have to facilitate contact visits between the mother and child which would be hard as my condition fluctuates and my son as numerous appointments. Whilst they agreed that I could provide a warm and nurturing environment for the child it wouldn’t be in their best interests as I have many health issues. The report goes into detail about my conditions and that I’ve had help from OT with adaptions in my bathroom and details on numerous times the help I get from family members as in they take me shopping, take me appointments etc and I rely on the heavily for help etc .... but it also contains a lot of sensitive personal information so I was wondering shall I include this with my PIP application and just black out the parts not relevant and private to me? Anyway sorry for rambling, just unsure whether it would help?
