Hi all. I've been waiting over a year for my appeal. I was granted standard rate for daily living but there are many factors that made me disagree with their decision. I had a date last month and was too ill to attend. I recieved a letter stating that the court had decided to adjourn rather than let it take place in my absence "in the interest of justice" 1st question is is this a standard letter for an adjournment next is that my appeal.is now om Friday and I've been told to take my bundle that I was sent. Can anyone tell me why this is?? Should I be making points and highlights in the bundle?? Can anyone help?? 
Thanks.

    Welcome

    Ring the DWP to find out. Do you have a advocate or not? My son’s amazing social worker acts as my advocate.

    In the interest of justice, is likened to being fair, giving you a chance to put your case and answer any questions the tribunal members may have regarding your appeal.

    You would address any questions regarding the appeal process directly to HMCTS clerk not to the DWP it is independent of the DWP. 

    You need to take your bundle as it contains all the paperwork required for the case, along with your SSCS1 form you filled in to start the process and also the reasons you are appealing. 

    Have  a read of the following link from CAB it explains the process, and also has a link to see if there is an advocate or representative available locally.

    Try & be kind to one another even if we may have different views.

    CAB very rarely represent at a Tribunal now because they don't have the funding. Welfare rights and a law centre will represent, this link will tell you what's available in your area. https://advicelocal.uk/
