Thanks for the add
in appalled by the new system of pip
im fighting for my daughter 
she has had dla for years and now refused pip scored 0 on mr
just about to appeal
looki g for supporting evidence which is hard for a 26 year old who family do all the care and help 
daughter has a diagnosis of asd and moderate learning disability
she managed to work 16 hrs which went against her bless her 
it’s a hard fright and thought all my fighting days were over 
any help and advice on letters of supporting evidence gratefully received 
all assessments are 10 years old
gp will write supporting letter regarding a couple of things such as her antidepressants and her cutting herself cooking etc ..
im just trying to devise a letter for her work to support the fact that she needs allowances made and has previously had a job coach 
Anyone else struggle with this?

    Hello @jan1991 and welcome to the community. Very glad to have you here.
    I'm relatively new here myself, but I can tell you that the number of posts I've already seen about PIP only goes to demonstrate just how badly these things are being handled by the so-called 'professionals'. However, my ranting won't help.
    I can tell you that there is a lot of knowledge here, and useful information, some of which you will find in the links on the purple band across the bottom of the page. Check out, in particular, those listed under Employment, finances and disability benefits. I'm putting in here a link to the 'Ask a benefits advisor', since that might be a useful starting point:
    https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/ask-a-benefits-advisor
    You're in a safe place, here, and among friends, many of whom will have had very similar experiences to your own, so don't hesitate to tell us more or to ask us any questions.
    Warmest best wishes to you, and to yours,

    Richard
