    Hi @issy269, and a warm welcome to the community!

    Thanks for sharing this with us, and I'm so sorry to hear things are tough at the moment. The appeals and tribunal system can feel really overwhelming, but hopefully we can help.

    Would you like to talk to one of the helpline team over the phone about this? If so, you can reach them at 0808 800 3333 (free) or find out more here. In the meantime, do feel free to keep talking to us, and we'll advise where we can- many of our community members have also experienced tribunals, and I'm sure they'll be able to empathise and offer their support too!
