My son is autistic and has aspergers  dyspraxia  her is 24 and lost his p.i.p.and I lost my carers allowance  every day he needs constant care the face to face is unfair even with my sons medical history and a copy of statement from education they still turned him down

    I'm sorry to hear that @cazza2016. Will you be appealing the decision? We have some information here about how you can go about doing that if it's of any use to you.

    Hi @cazza2016 and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you and thank you for sharing.  I'm really sorry to hear about the PIP decision.  This seems very unfair and I agree with the others, that you should appeal this decision.  I wish you well with it, but please keep in touch and let us know how you are getting on.  You seem to have a lot going on at home with your son and we can be supportive on the Community should you need us so please give us a shout if there is anything you need.  Here you will find many friendly people who are always available for a chat.  I look forward to seeing you on the Community.  All the best.   :)
