    Hi @stephenwalker - you can appeal to the Upper Tribunal, but only if an error in law can be found in your Statement of Reasons (SOR). You would therefore need someone to look through your SOR to see if they could identify any, & if they might change your award. There's some advice here on Scope: https://www.scope.org.uk/advice-and-support/further-appeal-upper-tribunal/
