I'm going to tribunal. Is there any way I can prove I'm disabled as further evidence?

Hi I have been told I have osteoarthritis and it has become so bad that some days I can’t walk I also suffer with my mental health. I applied for PIP and then went through the MR process but I didn’t have enough evidence as was waiting for my diagnosis of O.R, autism and ADHD. I have had my diagnosis for osteoarthritis and ADHD but now have to go to a tribunal, is there any way I could be classed as disabled or get proof I’m disabled as further evidence? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Hi there 

    There is no such thing anymore of proof you are disabled 

    Pip isn't about your diagnosis or being disabled it is about how your condition affects you against the descriptors 

    If you are going to tribunal I recommend you contact welfare rights for some expert advice and representation  

    Have a look in our pip section lots of info in there 

    Good luck
