Welfare rights and tribunal

Leigh14 Member Posts: 346 Pioneering
Can anyone tell me what help I’m likely to receive from welfare rights if my next stage should be a tribunal?

    I suppose the question is what are you possibly looking for from WR and have you spoke to them to ascertain if they are able to help?
    Be extra nice to new members.

    I spoke to them regarding the MR and was just advised to contact them if a tribunal was the next step. I don’t know what to expect, as in what support they can give me, hence the question.

    Every service is different. They are funded differently; have different staff numbers and so on. The only answer is to actually talk to them.
    I will do. Thankyou.
