    I think it's very rare that CAB will do home visits these days because they most likely don't have the funding anymore. Not sure about any other advice centre like welfare rights or a law centre.

    Do you have a support worker that can take you? Or a family member or maybe even a friend?

    You have to remember that like most welfare organisations they are run as a charity and with that in mind try to see as many people as possible.
    Doing home visits would mean taking time away from seeing many others.
    They are stretched to the limit.

    You are lucky in a way in that you have a local CAB. Many areas have no one to turn to. My opinion of the CAB is poor. The only time I asked for help was ignored and nobody got back to me - that was in 2013, so still waiting 5 years later!

    Unfortunately that is how it is for many - they have to struggle through on their own not really knowing if they are doing the right thing or not.

    As for having a home assessment for PIP, again you do really have to be in a serious position to be offered one. All three of mine were at assessment centres which was a complete nightmare.
    But that is how it is unfortunately.
