Post 16 residential setting with one to one support DWP now want to stop PIP daily living benefits
Hello everyone I am hoping some one can help me? YP has mental health disability, the YP's mental health has improved but they still need the same looking after and will now be going in to supported living but under post 16 residential setting with the aim for the YP to achieve independency. The DWP are looking at this as a supported living arrangement similar to a care home, that would mean the daily living support that the YP currently gets would stop. Can someone tell me if they have had experience of this and if the DWP would be correct? kind regards
