I have the date for my WCA . Both my daughter and my sister are unable to come with me. I am really frightened about going on my own. I also wonder if it goes against you if you are able to get there on your own.?
Thank you

    It depends on the reasons for your claim. If you're claiming for anxiety and you've stated in the form that you don't go out alone and you attend the assessment alone this can go against you. Do you have a friend that can go with you for support? You will have to answer all the questions yourself, even if someone goes with you. It's just taking someone can help any anxiety you feel on the day. Good luck with the assessment.
