Legal assistance for case against DWP

SMW83 Member Posts: 97 Courageous
I have recently posted regarding the fact the DWP have investigated my personal circumstance on three occasions in the last year. Although I have been cleared by them on each occasion and they too believe this could be borne of some ill feelings from a neighbour  they have stated that they are impotent to do anything should they report me again.

Each time I am investigated, my health declines substantially. I have also been fighting the DWP to be awarded state benefits for the last three years and it is now getting to the point that I’m beginning to consider ending my life 

I am now looking at taking legal action against the DWP but as I’m sure many of you will understand, having to survive off of state benefits, I do not have a lot of ‘spare’ monies to be able to do so.

Can anyone advise of any organisations who could assist me or a low cost solicitor or such to assist me in proceeding with this case?
