Hello, I've joined to get some help and advice after a recent assessment where the small amount of Pip I received has been removed when I put in a request for further help. I am completely devastated

    Hello @LynAllen   Pleased to meet you.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    Sorry to hear this, I know a stressful time.

    You have come to the right place for support.

    Please can advise with any outcome you not happy with you need to appeal.

    Plenty of this information on our website.

    Or you can look at this website.

    https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk

    Where you can access information and advice speak to an advisor.

    Called a Mandatory Reconsideration need to put in writing why the reasons you need to appeal.

    Look at the descriptors anything you need to add, give further examples of .

    More evidence if it is available.

    I know if you have a mental health support or health worker or any one who is supporting you should be helping understand what you have to do.

    Please may I suggest further if you have a condition or illness or disability that may have a organisation or charity.

    Relevant happy to supply this.

    Please I would just try to remain positive.  Most appeals are successful and need to focus on that important.

    Please if anxious or stressed please contact me happy to listen have compassion and empathy.

    Can offer further support with anxiety give you some organisations and charities to look at.

    Please take care and safe.
