Esa assessment

I have an esa assessment coming up in the next couple of weeks  I have adhd ptsd anxiety HBD so it's a struggle anyway.. I have no family and no one to come with me to the assessment  I've currently been waiting 47 weeks for a pip tribunal hearing and now the possibility of losing esa. I can't cope anymore

    It's very rare that anyone from an advice agency will be able to attend a face to face assessment with a claimant. Usually a representative is just for Tribunals.

    Would you be able to get someone to go with you on a different date? You can cancel an appointment once, so maybe that's an option for you.
