    Hello @Ianjlumsden   Pleased to meet you.

    Sorry what you are going through.  You have come to the right place for anything you need to know.

    Citizens advice have a question by question guide to filling in a  PIP claim form.  on their website which you might find useful.

    I would suggest contact your local CAB.  They can help with form filling in and have expertise and knowledge.

    Understand the anxiety.  We as a community are here to support you any way which we can.

    We are friendly so please ask.

    Hope that helps.

    Please take care

    Hi @Ianjlumsden,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you here. :)

    The Citizens Advice page which @thespiceman links to above is a handy resource which you might find useful. We also have lots of information about PIP on our website which may be of interest to you to.

    I've also moved this post into our PIP, DLA and AA category, so other members can offer advice and support.

    I hope this helps. Do let us know if you have any other questions and if we can help in any way!

    Please do ask for help. It is a really difficult process but can be negotiated with support. 

    Many people on here have been through it and have lots of advice - me included!
