Any extra financial help when already claiming PIP?

klj1204 Member Posts: 4 Listener
Hello everyone I'm new and I'm hoping to get some advice from anyone willing to help. So im using a personal trainer as that is the only way I can effectively do exercise due to my cerebral palsy and  wheelchair. I do get PIP but that all goes to my mother who is my carer and needs all the help financially she can get. I do work very part time but my job refuses to give me anymore hours on my contract. As a result my personal training takes up quite a lot of my earnings (it's already at a discount) this and the cost of regular life is cause me lose my money rapidly. Is there any help I can get? I don't want to give up my trainer as I believe exercise is very helpful especially with my condition. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
