    Highly doubtful.
    Their funding was cut which meant that such work as you mention had to be curtailed.

    As you have a hearing date, it may not be possible to get representation at this late stage. If you have a welfare rights or law centre near you, you can try asking them. If not then you can take a friend or family member with you on the day. Either way, you'll still have to answer those questions yourself, they will want to hear it from you how your conditions affect you.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
