Hello, I'm pretty new here.
I applied for PIP for the 1st time September last year and had a telephone assesment earlier this month.
I have received the assesors report and I'm happy with the majority of it. I am aware that the decision maker can change the amount of points awarded.
The assesment gave me 11 points for care and 12 points for mobility.
My question is what is the definition of social support, with regards of engaging face to face?
 She gave me a tick on B saying I need prompting, however in her notes section she stated that she considered social support however she felt a family member can be present to provide encouragement.
Personally I would consider this to be social support and can't seem to find a definite answer.
Thanks in advance.
