Where can I get an advisor to join me on the day of my tribunal?

I am waiting for a tribunal date for PIP as I disagreed with the downgrade of DLA higher mobility and middle care to PIP standard both mobility and care. Where can I get an advisor to join me on the day of my tribunal?

    Hi @cruftsdog, and a warm welcome to the community!

    A good place to start would be the Advicelocal website, where you can input your postcode and find support available near you.

    So effectively the only change is that for PIP you have the standard rate whereas for DLA it was the higher rate?

    You are aware that for DLA the maximum distance you could walk was 50 metres to get the high rate whereas for PIP the maximum was reduced to 20 metres?
