DLA to PIP has now left my 16 year old son with only the standard rate mobility, now facing tribunal
Hi, has anyone got any advice as we are facing tribunal about my sons PIP decision to reduce his mobility component. My son has CP and has had the higher rate of mobility for the past 12 years. His walking is really bad, he trips and falls all the time and his balance is terrible. He has poor speech and is embarrassed by this too when out in public. We have appealed and are waiting for a date to take his case to tribunal. Any advice as to how we approach the panel? We have no idea what to expect and are incredibly nervous about the whole thing.
